Is Josh Hamilton Joking Me?

Hamilton’s cryptic comments over the weekend after he began the home stand 1-for-14.

“When the time is right, I’ll be honest with you, you’ll be right in the loop,” Hamilton said, according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. “I’ve been shown a lot of things over the past week. There’s disobedience and there’s obedience to God. I’ve been being disobedient. It may be a small thing to you, but it’s a big thing to him. There’s consequences. It’s like a father and a kid. There are disciplines. You guys can chew on that and think about it.”

There’s a lot of mystery with those comments. Ron Washington was unable to fill in more details, though he did confirm the existence of some issues.

“The issues is something that I think Josh would definitely have to be the one to expose,” Washington told The Ben & Skin Show on KSPN. “It’s certainly not physical. It has nothing to do with injuries. Josh is the one that made the statement and got all the inquiries going, and I think Josh is the one that has to put a rest to the inquiries, not Ron Washington. I can just tell you one thing: It is not because he’s hurt.”

That sound is him flushing tens of millions of dollars down the toilet this upcoming off-season. Get it together bro.

I'm curious when/what he started using again. Was it when he was on that incredible hot streak and decided to continue the fun after hours with some coke? Or was it during the massive slump and he reached for his old friend Mr. Whiskey?

There's speculation that he may be going through a divorce and that there wasn't a relapse, but either way, get it together.

Oh really? So he's been cheating on the Mrs. then? Either way, someone needs to dress up as God and wake the dude in the middle of the night with a good talk. :-b

Went from being addicted to drugs to being addicted to God. This guy just can't stay sober. He's probably gonna have to take a one year contract to prove he's mentally "with it" or else sign long term for severely reduced money. Not sure he's so concerned about the money, though.

The guy can't kick dipping tobacco. He might be going through withdrawals and it's messing with him.

I really wish he would stop being such a bible thumper and start hitting the ball again.
Here's the pitch on the way, a swing and a belt! Left field! Way back! BLUE JAYS WIN!
