It has to be said because no one else will say it.

Josh Hamilton gets more rope than any athlete on the planet. The media kills Lebron, Tiger, Kobe, Ochocinco and others over the smallest things.

They call them names and questions their character, but they have kid gloves with Josh Hamilton who has shown time and time again his demons are a much bigger problem than people want to admit.

It is media hypocrisy to the highest degree.

Hamilton’s cryptic comments over the weekend after he began the home stand 1-for-14.

“When the time is right, I’ll be honest with you, you’ll be right in the loop,” Hamilton said, according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. “I’ve been shown a lot of things over the past week. There’s disobedience and there’s obedience to God. I’ve been being disobedient. It may be a small thing to you, but it’s a big thing to him. There’s consequences. It’s like a father and a kid. There are disciplines. You guys can chew on that and think about it.”

There’s a lot of mystery with those comments. Ron Washington was unable to fill in more details, though he did confirm the existence of some issues.

“The issues is something that I think Josh would definitely have to be the one to expose,” Washington told The Ben & Skin Show on KSPN. “It’s certainly not physical. It has nothing to do with injuries. Josh is the one that made the statement and got all the inquiries going, and I think Josh is the one that has to put a rest to the inquiries, not Ron Washington. I can just tell you one thing: It is not because he’s hurt.”

Simply put Hamilton screws up a lot and no one wants to admit it.  He can blame God or whoever he likes but the problem is the person in the mirror, he needs to recognize that.

    I disagree. He just voiced a reason for a slump. Those things are always mental. You are adding an amendment to discuss how he is handled. He was in beast mode earlier this year and now he cooled off. He just advised as to why.
