Re: Hamilton for Volquez - then & now
Are people actually comparing Volquez's "drug use" to Hamilton's?
I've seen people on here call Volquez "immature" before, well then what do you call Josh Hamilton? Folks, last year Josh Hamilton blamed his drunken night at the bar on the bartenders. He said the bartender wanted to get him drunk and take pictures of him. That's not immature?
Josh Hamilton can't have a car. He can't have a credit card. He can't have more than $20 on him at any given time. He has to one of the Narron brothers following him around at all times. Anybody trying to equate Volquez's 50 game suspension and Hamilton's drug problem, I'm sorry, but that's just one of the dumbest things I've ever seen.
His drug/alcohol problem is so bad he couldn't have alcohol touch his skin for fear of a relapse.
I know people here love the Josh Hamilton story, but it's a dark dark story and he's a guy who still has a lot of demons.
