Josh Hamilton Speaks
Josh Hamilton, among your newer Texas Rangers, was huzzahed this a.m. in Dallas' Only Daily -- appropriate, given that the oft-suspended, formerly addicted outfielder who once wore Cincinnati red is batting .600 during spring training. Evan Grant's profile (his second in two months, actually) comes a few days after Hamilton appeared on KTCK-AM's "Hardline," during which the man known as "Hammer" (calm down) addressed his dark days and newfound faith with considerable aplomb. The Ticket has kindly allowed us to make the interview available to our Friends of Unfair Park who could indeed use some baseball. --Robert Wilonsky
