Did anyone see Josh Hamiltons episode yesterday when he went off on his third base coach? I can't stand this spoiled brat. Just last season he blasted his coach in the media (not sure if it was the same guy or not) for sending him home on a play and Hamilton got hurt. Ron Washington should have jerked his hind end out of the game and made an example of that spoiled brat goof. Of course we are talking about the same Ron Washington who told MLB officials that he (Washington) found a white powdery substance and didn't know what it was so he snorted it up his nose instead of disposing of it.
I can't stand Josh Hamilton.
We won that trade.
Okay, Volquez didn't work out, but we got Latos.
Latos is cheap and under control. We'll have him for several more years. If we had kept Hamilton we couldn't have afforded him or certainly not him AND Votto.
You are absolutely correct.
Atrocious coaching by the Rangers all around and while there is certainly enough anti-Josh hate to go around on this board, they don't consider that he indeed has the best interests of his TEAM in mind.
Hamilton is a selfless player.
The Rangers absolutely love the guy, and go out of their way to have non-alcoholic celebrations in the clubhouse during their two recent World Series runs.
With a little luck, Hamilton would have had the series winning HR in a World Series game last season, and people on here have the chutzpah to say their thankful he's not a Red!
That play at third was atrocious and led to a killing of a rally and the Rangers getting doubled up on the base paths because their 3rd base coach flat out messed up.
Hamilton is a humble guy, and a team player. He saw this as a play that potentially put his team in a very bad situation by a coach who fell asleep on the job.
Ironically, the player most often suggested as the one who had the most problems with Hamilton in Cincy is BP.
As great a talent as Phillips is, there is no more ME ME type player out there than Brandon. I think Phillips had problems with Josh potentially taking the spotlight off of him in Cincinnati.
Actually, we got Johnny Cueto in that trade. Mat Latos came from San Diego.
I thought we got him from the Rangers with Volquez. *confused*
Okay, I was mistaken...
