Re: Drug addiction (formerly of the "Hamilton for Volquez" thread)
"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."
And Edinson Volquez has a car and a credit card and all those things but he isn't as good as a baseball player as Josh Hamilton and it isn't close.
Corey Patterson probably has sterling credit and a gold AmEx card but I wouldn't trade Josh Hamilton for him.
Those poor Texas Rangers...look at all the trouble they are having with a guy they paid 3 times more than the Reds had invested in Hamilton.
If you're watchin' a parade, make sure you stand in one spot, don't follow it, it never changes. And if the parade is boring, run in the opposite direction, you will fast-foward the parade. --Mitch Hedberg
