ARLINGTON Throughout the last few weeks, the argument can be made that Josh Hamilton hasn't appeared interested in playing baseball. The five-time All-Star outfielder who hit .395 in April and drilled 12 home runs in May, cooled during the second-half of the season and plummeted during the final month.
The Rangers' 5-1 wild-card loss to the Orioles Friday night saw Hamilton...
Texas Rangers outfielder Josh Hamilton, who will be a free agent, said he would love to return to the team but his decision will be led by God. The devoutly religious Hamilton has been scrutinized for his play lately. He was booed during a 0-for-4 game Friday as the Rangers were eliminated by the Baltimore Orioles 5-1 in the American Wild playoff. "You hate to have it happen...
Many things are known about Josh Hamilton -- far more details of the man's personal life have been made public information than just about any other athlete. We know he's a recovering alcoholic, we know he's devoutly religious, we know he's injury prone, we know he's trying to quit caffeine and we know, when he's on the field, he's one of the best, most...
The Texas Rangers had a great season that ended in disappointment. It would be easy to say the season itself was a disappointment because of how it ended, but that would minimize the success Texas had throughout almost the entire regular season. They led the American League West from April until the final day of the regular season when the Oakland Athletics overtook them and forced...
One of the intriguing match-ups within the St. Louis Cardinals and Washington Nationals five game series is the match-up between the managers.
Cardinals manager Mike Matheny is managing in his first season and his first post-season. Meanwhile, Nationals manager Davey Johnson has been around the block for a long time.
Johnson clearly has the edge in experience and may have...
Texas Rangers outfielder Josh Hamilton appears destined to become a free agent. The team won't make any offers to the slugger during the team's exclusive negotiating window, meaning he will hit the open market. Rangers’ general manager Jon Daniels told ESPN.com that the team agreed with Hamilton's agents that the outfielder would field offers. "The realities...
After going 0-4 and being booed during Friday’s 5-1 loss to the Baltimore Orioles in the AL Wild Card game at the Rangers Ballpark in Arlington, Texas center fielder and impending free agent Josh Hamilton insinuated he has played his … Continue reading →
The Texas Rangers could look a bit different in the 2013 MLB season, having suffered a bit of a collapse to end the 2012 season. It culminated in the Rangers losing at home in the new wild card play-in game to the Baltimore Orioles. It may very well have been the final time we ever see Josh Hamilton wearing a Rangers uniform.Hamilton put up some solid numbers once again in 2012,...
The Texas Rangers are prepared to let Josh Hamilton test the market, Jon Heyman of CBS Sports reports. The Rangers at this point in time are not ready to offer the number of years or type of money Hamilton is looking for. The Rangers in essence are hoping teams around the league will develop the market for Hamilton and they will be able to come in at the end and potentially reach...
Last night, the great American feelgood story of the new millenium, Josh Hamilton, came to bat for what might be his final appearance in a Rangers costume. He fanned and walked away under a spit-shower of boos. (His shower of real booze, presumably, comes later.)Three hours earlier, the delightful Southern hospitality suburb of Red State America, Atlanta, showered debris across...
Jeff Zimmerman and I have done lots of work on player aging curves in the past 12 to 18 months. Jeff started things off with a series of hitter aging curves, which focused mostly on standard outcomes and WAR components. Jeff and I then joined forces this year for a series focused on pitcher aging.This time around, I wanted to know how a hitter’s plate discipline changes over his...
If this were a year that Texas Rangers have come to expect, they would have been preparing for Game 2 of the American League Division Series Monday at Rangers Ballpark.Instead, the Rangers are watching the game if they want and still licking their wounds after a season that started with so much promise went so wrong.But the Rangers won't be able to sulk for long as they have...
