Re: Will Hamilton Start Friday???
The more this Hamilton story unfolds, the more the Devil Rays organization is looking increasingly inept (as if they didn't already).
Were they simply clueless as to his talent? Did they think he had no chance whatsoever to ever play in the majors? Did they think his baggage was too much for any team to take a chance on?
Even considering all of those things, you would think any organization that had a player with the raw skills and talent of Hamilton would hold onto him until the last possible ounce of hope was drained. It's not like he was costing them a fortune, or even a roster spot. Yet they lost him for essentially nothing. It really does boggle the mind.
We'll burn that bridge when we get to it.
