    Was quite a hostile enviroment when I was at Tropicana Field last year. I think it's mostly due to the mentality the southerns have. They treat it like a football game.

    THis has to be some kind of joke. The Ray's fans are all in their 60'ss and up and have never been a problem when I have been there in Yankee's gear and rooting for the Yankees. The cowbells are the worst part of a Trop experience, IMO.

    Josh Hamilton out 8+ weeks after injuring his shoulder sliding into home plate.

    I'm sure he'll find a way to pass the time.

    I heard on the way home that he'll pick up a bat in 4 weeks even though he's not scheduled to come back for 8 weeks...

    "It was just a stupid play," Hamilton said after the game. "I definitely shouldn't have done it."
    Hamilton added: "I listened to my third base coach. That's a little too aggressive. The whole time I was watching the play I was listening. [He said], 'Nobody's at home, nobody's at home.' I was like, 'Dude, I don't want to do this. Something's going to happen.' But I listened to my coach. And how do you avoid a tag the best, by going in headfirst and get out of the way and get in there. That's what I did."
    I think he broke his arm throwing his third base coach under the bus.

    I'd imagine on a play like that, the runner has the ultimate say in the matter. Also, his coach didn't yell, "slide head first!"

    Maybe the third base coach said 'Simon says...'

    The 3B coach told you to go. You decided to slide in a way that hurt yourself. Man up.

    seriously. OR, he could've just NOT gone at all, and then dealt with whatever afterwards. Blaming his coach because he hurt himself is childish. JH is clearly mad at the knowledge of how brittle he himself is.

    I can't believe he would say that publicly. What a tool.

    Yeah, throwing a teammate under the bus like that is stupid. What benefit does he or the team get out of trying to blame it on the coach? It was an aggressive play, and he got hurt. Sh*t happens man. Jeebus.

    Not surprising seeing a drug addict not accepting responsibility for his own actions. I understand he's not on the stuff now, but his addiction will always be a problem for him.
