Benefits of bringing Hamilton back outweigh concerns

What are the Texas Rangers thinking in making a trade for Josh Hamilton? The question was posed to me on a radio show this week, a day after the deal in which the Angels sent Hamilton back to Texas for a player to be named later or cash considerations. The terms of the deal sound far more cold and business-like than the emotional drama that surrounded the trade and Hamilton’s...

Get your Texas Rangers season tickets now...because Josh Hamilton may blow at any time!

Yesterday the moral compass that is the internet went after an SB Nation writer for basically wishing that Texas Rangers douchebag Josh Hamilton relapses and winds up dead. It would have been more comical if a website known for spilling info gained from a confidential conversation (and even more information taken from an 'off the record' phone conversation) had simply attacked the...

What will the Angels do with the money they saved by trading Josh Hamilton?

Arte Moreno may be happy just to be rid of Josh Hamilton, but he’s got to be a little it happy to get some financial savings from dealing him as well. OK, maybe he’s a lot happy about it. The Angels have been living in fear of the luxury tax line for the last few years, but trading Josh Hamilton got them some additional leeway. That leeway gives them plenty of flexibility to...

This Josh Hamilton Camiltoe Modified Jersey Might Be An All-Timer

Look, I’ve seen thousands of modified jerseys over the year — mostly NFL from Browns fans, but there are plenty of MLB modifieds that are great — and this just might’ve redefined the modified game. I’m talking 7 1/2 years of doing this gig. Greatest ever? It’s close. Real close. We saw this gem at the ballpark yesterday. @1053SS@JC1053@gavindawson@MikeBacsik@ThatGuyLeeRoypic...

That douche Josh Hamilton sent batting video to Texas Rangers...in March

osh Hamilton told reporters on Tuesday that he sent the Texas Rangers a video of himself hitting back in March. Steve DelVecchio writes:That would have been while Hamilton was rehabbing from a shoulder injury and several weeks after he reportedly confessed to a drug relapse, so it sounds like he knew he had played his last game with the Angels. Considering the Angels were open about...

Did Josh Hamilton Tamper His Way Out Of Los Angeles And Back To Texas?

The Josh Hamilton drama keeps getting weirder. Hamilton told reporters that he sent a video of himself hitting “full-go” on March 9 to the Texas Rangers, his former (and now current) team, via The Orange County Telegram.

Outside Corner: The Angels, Hamilton and the lessons to be learned

As many of you know, I moonlight over at The Outside Corner on a pretty regular basis.
