The Rangers want Josh Hamilton to play left field full time

2011 World Series Game 7 - Texas Rangers v St Louis Cardinals Getty Images

Anthony Andro of Fox Sports Southwest hears that the Rangers want Josh Hamilton to play left field full time, ending whatever is left of his career as a center fielder.

He’s only played a handful of games out there the past two seasons, of course, but even that seems a bit much for the increasingly banged up Hamilton.  Left field will likely exact a lesser toll on his body.

Is it too soon, Rangers fans, for me to wonder what would have been had he been moved to right field full time for the World Series?  Or at least in time of the ninth inning of Game 6?

OK, yeah, it’s probably too soon.  Sorry about that.

    God will tell him to move to left field, but apparently his has a messed up sense of humor the way he screwed with josh’s head by telling he’d hit that home run, but didn’t tell him they’d lose the series.

    Kinda makes me like god more than I did.

    And who did that song about god having a sick sense of humor? X? They might be giants?

    Plus when he’s a Free Agent as a LF he’ll demand less than a CF would.
