Josh Hamilton to miss entire weekend series with sinus infection, vision problems

Josh Hamilton is out of the lineup tonight for the third straight game due to vision problems stemming from a sinus infection and the Rangers announced that he’ll miss the entire weekend series against the Mariners.

Hamilton left Tuesday’s game in the fourth inning, at which point a prominent Dallas columnist wrote a ridiculous article calling the former MVP soft and questioning his mental toughness. That looks even sillier now that Hamilton has been examined by doctors and continues to have vision problems.

It also opens the door for Miguel Cabrera to more easily pass Hamilton for the home run lead. Right now Hamilton leads the AL with 42 and Cabrera is right behind him with 41, and the Tigers third baseman leads the league in the other two triple crown categories.

    Jean-Jacques Taylor (the “prominent Dallas columnist”) is a total d-bag. He’s had his own little history. He shut down his Twitter account for accidentally tweeting a DM- http://www.theunticket.com/jean-jacques-taylors-hacked-tweet/

    That’s pretty much describes him right there.

      If it’s the boneless honey bbq wings from KFC he’s offering, he could easily get more than the current deal on the table.

    I think this goes all the way back to quitting chewing tobacco. He must be trying to be 100% clean for free agency. We all know that would be the biggest concern, but as a smoker and a drinker, have ONE smoke and get your mind on baseball.
