    Josh Hamilton

    Considering what he's been doing lately I thought he needs his own thread.
    Not only is he on pace for a triple crown, but he's doing it in his walk year.

    Re: Josh Hamilton

    Can't imagine Nolan Ryan & Co. letting him walk. Think he stays put.

    They will offer him an extention. Question is for how much, for how long, and will he accept?
    His agent isn't Scott Boras so who knows?

    Here's another viewpoint:

    He's also 31 and has a history of injury. You think someone is going to give him more than 6 years? I guess it's possible, but they'd be stupid to imo. I could see max 6/150, or I guess if it takes that extra year, 7/175.

    That's insane. If I'm the Yankees I offer a ridiculous overpayment but for shorter term. 3/90. Yes you're overpaying, but you're not handcuffing yourself for the better part of a decade and decline.

    Re: Josh Hamilton

    They actually said something intelligent on BBTN yesterday. The off-the-field stuff is going to be almost as important as the contract for him. He has a solid support group there with the Rangers. The guys all understand how important it is for him to feel comfortable - drinking ginger ale instead of alcoholic beverages, for instance. I'm not saying that if he were to sign with another team he wouldn't get that same type of support, but it's the unknown factor until he gets there. One franchise he needs to avoid is Boston. Valentine is enough to make anybody drink.

    Realistically, he should probably stay out of any major metropolitan city, which will decrease his value, since those are the largest markets. No NYC, Boston, Chicago, or LA.

    He can't be the only addict in MLB. Why is he the only one handled with kid gloves?

    Yep, I would say that has a lot to do with it - that and the fact that he's open about his struggles.

    You know it's such a shame he's had all the missed time in his career due to his off the field issues. I really would love to know where he'd be now without it. Such an awesome talent. If he stays healthy he's one of the most dangerous hitters in the entire game.

    What do you mean kid gloves? Just curious. I think he's treated the same as Miguel Cabrera has been. Sorry I'm just unclear of what you mean.

    Re: Josh Hamilton

    This guy may have a drinking problem but he was sure Andrus's Designated Driver last night.

    THANK You I'll be here all week.

    Anyways, I for one love this guy. He is a very gifted player with a very gifted career. And here's the sad part, It could have even been more Gifted if it weren't for his demons. His Drug addiction/Alcohol addiction/ injuries ruined his career. There is no question that this guy is gifted. I just think he could have been something a whole lot more if it weren't for his addictions. Something tells me Hamilton stays put. As well as he should. I really don't want to see him play for another team.
    Still and will always be a New England Patriots fan.

    I just can't imagine if this guy were sober from the get-go what his lifetime stats would look like by now.

    It wasn't just drinking it was drinking/drugs/injuries. Take out the Injuries and Addictions. The potential of Hamilton is limitless.
