Re: Reds Rule 5 Selections (Josh Hamilton?)
Yeah, I saw that. It said all the things we've read about, but surprisingly, it seemed like there wasn't as much optimism. (I say "surprisingly" because it aired on television.)
Anyway, I haven't seen it since the summer (in a Toledo hotel), so my memory of it isn't crystal clear, but I believe he was living with his wife's family, and his wife basically said she could never trust him to ever stay off drugs/alcohol, so she follows him everywhere (literally, aside from the restroom, pretty much). Like, if he's playing a game across the country, she rides in a separate vehicle, following the team bus. And after games, he has to walk by her side all the way from the field to the bus and so on. I remember thinking it was ridiculous, but it's so much better than what they were putting up with before (him being wasted and missing all the time), so at least it's a step in the right direction.
