Josh Hamilton is always a little banged up, so it’s not exactly shocking to see him get banged up again. The latest ailment revealed itself last night, as Hamilton left the game against the Twins with a sore right shoulder.

He said afterward that he’s been dealing with the injury since Tuesday. He’ll receive a cortisone injection and will sit out tonight. The Angels currently have a five-game cushion in the AL West.

    What a seriously huge downfall for this guy… Ever since joinin the Angels, injuries like this always gets in the way for him. His usual self with the Rangers organization is nothin compared to what he is right now.

      There were many, while praising his comeback to the game from his years away and his drug addiction who also said that they worried how he’d “age” in the game due that past history.

      Many thought, expected and predicted that he’d fall off is my point.

      No, I’m not doing an I told you so because I wasn’t one of them.

      Looks like they were right though.

        I don’t know how anyone can really link his injuries to his addiction issues, though. At best, it’s just wild speculation to try to make that connection. He could be injury prone if he never left the game and never had substance problems, too.

        Wow. A lot of idiots here.

    What a bust of a signing!

    Sure, nice cushion in the division, but the Orioles are only 2 games behind the Angels for best record in the AL.

      Yea, you’re right eutaw but only 3 top seeds have won the world series in the last 17 years. So it doesn’t usually bode well for the team with that honor.

    Fortunately, Hamilton is a big part of the payroll, but not the team. They can make do without him.
