When Robinson Cano signed his mega-deal with the Seattle Mariners, the two names that came up most often in stories and comparisons were Albert Pujols and Josh Hamilton. The two recent free agent sweepstakes winners were used as the counterweight of what can go wrong with signing long-term deals to players past their primes.

ARLINGTON, Texas Josh Hamilton's 2013 season started with a rude reception in Arlington and it ended with one.

This season has had more than its share of disappointments
for Angel’s fans and one of the biggest disappointments has been the struggles

Josh Hamilton doesn't care what the fans have to say about him, or even whether his team wins or loses, according to a recent column by T.J. Simers of the Los Angeles Times.

Texas Rangers fans may finally have some insight into Hamiltons carefree attitude at the end of last season while his...
Josh Hamilton already dealt with being booed on the road to start the season, and now he’s hearing the boos at home, too.
Hamilton was booed on Friday night during the Angels’ 4-0 win over the Baltimore Orioles. Hamilton DHd and batted fifth, going 0-for-4 with three strikeouts. Multiple people noted that he was getting booed during the night, and OC Register sports intern Sam...
GOOD HAIR DAY
One Josh Hamilton fan who wanted a simple autograph got a lot more than he bargained for. On Monday (and Tuesday morning), Hamilton was flailing, going 0-for-8 in the Angels’ 19-inning loss to the Oakland Athletics. However, Hamilton was also signing autographs during the game, apparently, and doing a little proselytizing, too. Hamilton tossed the ball in the image below to a fan...
ARLINGTON, Texas Fans in right field at Rangers Ballpark had a long weekend of heckling Josh Hamilton in his return to Rangers Ballpark.
Hamilton said some of the fans crossed the line, but he also had fun with it too. He played like he was throwing a football in reference to his football town comments this spring.
But did he take things too far by making an obscene gesture...
