Hamilton brought to Hosp. Back to his old Habits????

Postby Crystalstorm » Sat May 19, 2007 4:25 pm

Is it possible that J. Hamilton is back into his drug habits ????? He went in today for Gastroenits(what ever the heck it was.)and got released!!! Addictions are hard to beat.Has anyone else noticed his stats have sucked recently?? He must have been celebrating his good start to the season,a little to much !!!!
I'm dropping him.He needs a drug rehab again. :-/

He's been clean for over a year, and of course its not impossible that he fell off the wagon, but you are leaping to conclusions.

He had a severe stomach ache, thats all we know right now, if I were his owner, I wouldn't be dropping him now.

Everyone deserves a second chance, Hamilton is a stud in the making and should be treated as such in fantasy terms.

Thats what Cocain or his Drug of choice can do to a stomache.Falling off the wagon is very easy to do.It happens to most Addicts.I should know.I've been on and off the wagon for years.My wife is also a Drug and Alcohol Counsler to boot.I here and know it all,when it comes to addictions.It isn't Fun.

For his sake I hope he didn't slip back into his old habits.I'd rather see him get help than continue playing Baseball.Even though I could use himon my team.I'm benching him ALL of next week.If he doesn't play in the next week,you know he's back to his old ways.I hope it's NOT so. :-/

Come on pal, there's really no need to jump to conclusions.

This is basically a severe stomach virus. I'm not a druggie, and I've had these on occasion. And I've never heard of cocaine or crack causing stomach problems - I'm sure they're not real easy on the stomach, but that would definitely be one of the very lesser symptoms.

The condition he has can last up to 10 days, so if he doesn't play a few games in a row, I would also not assume he's "up to his old habits."

we've all had gastroenteritis at some point.

It's not some uncommmon, mystical disease. It's a common viral infection causing vomiting and diarrhea. Some people have more pronounced responses and end up dehydrated from it, leading to ER visits for IV fluids. You receive your IV fluids and go home.

While Hamilton's past certainly brings the idea of slipping back into his addiction into question, there's nothing else about this story that is out of the ordinary. Recovering drug addicts get viral infections just like the rest of us.
When you are a man, sometimes you wear stretchy pants in your room...is for fun.

Breaking news. It's being reported that Josh Hamilton scratched his nose during batting practice. It's also being reported that he broke wind during the same batting practice. Oh my god. You know what this means. He MUST be back to using drugs again.

Jeeze give the guy a break.

Take it easy on the guy, leave him alone. I'm sure hes fine, and hes a good fantasy player to boot. Poor guy cant have a stomach ache or the sniffles without people calling him a druggie again
