  1. Texas writers still not letting go of the Josh Hamilton thing

    First I saw this, from the Texas-based Richard Justice: Memo to Josh Hamilton: Rangers lead the AL in average attendance at 38,822. — Richard Justice (@richardjustice) May 5, 2013   Then the Dallas Morning News page picked it up as if it were relevant. Adding near the end, by the way, that the Angels are…

  2. Should the Angels trade Mike Scioscia?

    With an 8-4 loss to the Orioles this afternoon, the Angels dropped to 11-20 on the season, ahead of only the lowly Astros in the AL West. What was thought to be a promising season for the win-now Angels has become a nightmare due to injuries, a putrid starting rotation, and an ineffective start to…

  3. Josh Hamilton had a long night to forget

    Apr 30, 2013, 10:30 AM EDT

    Josh Hamilton

    For all the heroics in last night’s 19-inning game between the Angels and the A’s there was a good deal of ignominy as well. Mostly from Josh Hamilton who put up the snowman in the box score: an 0 for 8 performance. He struck out three times and had eight swinging strikes in all. His…

  4. Ball Josh Hamilton dropped in game 162 last year auctioned off for $1,280

    Headline says it all: The #Athletics ended up selling the ball that Josh Hamilton dropped in Game 162 for $1,280. Part of the proceeds went to charity. — Casey Pratt (@CaseyPrattCSN) April 22, 2013   I wonder who bought it. If it was a fan from California the Rangers beat writers would have to question…

  5. Angels drop struggling Josh Hamilton out of cleanup spot

    Apr 22, 2013, 5:29 PM EDT

    Oakland Athletics v Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim

    Teams have been pitching around Albert Pujols to get to Josh Hamilton, so the Angels have dropped Hamilton to No. 5 in the lineup tonight after using him in the cleanup spot for each of the first 17 games. That could be partly due to facing a left-hander in Derek Holland, but if Hamilton were…

    God, wasn’t that family thing/working/cleaning/ thing a pain in the butt this weekend? Kept you from paying attention to baseball? Yeah, me too.

    Detroit Tigers v Oakland Athletics

    Tigers 10, Athletics 1: Austin Jackson was 4 for 6 with three RBI. Prince Fielder is now hitting .429/.527/.833. Once this team gets its bullpen figured out, man, watch out. Diamondbacks 1, Dodgers 0: When Nick Swisher hit a walkoff homer single in a 1-0 game the other day I thought to myself, “man, you don’t…

  8. Angels slow to start 2013

    Apr 13, 2013, 10:45 PM EDT

    Oakland Athletics v Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim

    The L.A. Angels, some prognosticators’ pick to win the AL West, have stumbled out of the gate to a 2-8 start, dead last in the division. As I write this, they trail the Astros, some prognosticators’ pick to win fewer than 55 games, 2-0 a night after getting blanked 5-0. With a loss tonight, they…

  9. Josh Hamilton loses track of outs on game-ending play

    Apr 13, 2013, 3:17 AM EDT

    Josh Hamilton doubled off

    Regardless, the Angels were going quietly on Friday night. They didn’t have to go so carelessly as well, though. Josh Hamilton, the Angels’ $125 million man, forgot how many outs there were on a foul popup in the ninth inning and got doubled off to end Friday’s 5-0 loss to the Astros. The absent-minded Hamilton…

  11. Quote of the Day: Josh Hamilton

    It was an eventful few days for Josh Hamilton in Texas. He’s been booed, jeered, his family felt it needed personal security  and, above all else, he played exceedingly poorly. He redeemed himself a bit yesterday, but it was basically a train wreck for him.  So Bob Nightengale of USA Today asked him if Texas…

    There’s a lot that goes on during the weekend of a baseball season. And a lot of you, for reasons that must make some sort of sense, but like, whatever, choose to only read HBT during the week while you’re at work. I guess that’s OK. I’m sure your family is nice. But you really…

    Country Breakfast

    Royals 9, Phillies 8: Country. Breakfast. Billy Butler drives in seven via a grand slam and a three-run double. The loss is an especially disheartening one for Philly, as they were staked to a 4-0 lead early with their ace on the hill. Cole Hamels was rocked, though, and now stands at 0-2 with a 10.97 ERA…

    Texas Rangers pitcher Yu Darvish pitches against the Los Angeles Angels in Arlington, Texas

    Even though Josh Hamilton finished his return to Texas by going 3-for-5, the Rangers claimed the series Sunday night, beating the Angels 7-3. Unfortunately, Hamilton failed to come through when it would have made the biggest difference. After Yu Darvish opened the top of the first with a walk, a hit by pitch and another…

  15. Josh Hamilton opens Angels career 1-for-20 with 10 strikeouts

    It’s obviously way too early to panic, but Josh Hamilton‘s Angels career is off to a slow start. The $133 million man went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts on Saturday and is now 1-for-20 with 10 strikeouts through the first five games of Anaheim’s regular-season schedule. The Rangers, intimately familiar with Hamilton’s random offensive funks, gave Albert…

    Josh Hamilton knew the boos were coming in his return to Arlington on Friday, but he was still disappointed by much of what he heard in the Rangers’ 3-2 win over the Angels. “It probably hurts a little bit more to know that people would just turn that quickly,” Hamilton said. “You know, to think…

    Texas Rangers fans hold signs mocking Los Angeles Angels' Josh Hamilton in Arlington, Texas

    Josh Hamilton had no answer for the boos that rained down in his return to Arlington on Friday; the former AL MVP went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts and a couple of misplays in right field as the Angels lost to the Rangers 3-2. Adrian Beltre hit a game-tying homer for Texas in the seventh, and…

    UPDATE: Hamilton came up to boos, but nothing incredible. Then Hamilton struck out on four pitches and the crowd exploded with cheers, way louder than the boos.  I assume that this drama is over.  That is, unless Hamilton himself adds to it.  Which it seems like he’s doing. Here’s what he had to say after…

    Reds 5, Angels 4: Albert Pujols and Josh Hamilton finally upped their averages north of .000 — each went 1 for 4 and drove in a couple — but not enough to matter. Aroldis Chapman came in to pitch the ninth against the top of the order. Mike Trout singled but then he got Aybar…

    Josh Hamilton makes his return to Arlington tomorrow as the Angels begin a series with the Rangers. It’s hard enough to get fans to not boo a former player who left via free agency. But one who left and joined a rival? And one who, after joining the rival, said that the old city was…

In a four-hour and 45-minute marathon, the Angels topped the Reds 3-1 in 13 innings this evening at Great American Ballpark.
