Fine. Be angy. but 24 hours later he’s still blaming his coach for being “stupid.” Learn how to slide and stop blaming others for your failings/bad luck/whatever you want to call it.

Josh Hamilton recovered from severe drug addiction. I don’t think “maturity” is something people should be killing him over. He’s overcome a lot, he’s allowed to slip up now and again. He shouldn’t have handled it the way he did, but it’s not like he pulled a Milton Bradley in his trouble making prime and showed up wearing a “F*** Ron Washington” shirt.
