    This is very sad news . That kid has such a natural swing and the demons seem to get him now and then . I wish Josh nothing but GOOD in his future .

    I feel sorry for Josh Hamilton also but well known sports figures with addiction problems should not be drinking in public.

    Not that its an excuse but maybe he couldnt't deal with the fact that he tossed the ball to the guy that fell to his death.

    This kid had everything going right for him...Maybe Nolan will try to see it,to give him one more chance...But he can't screw up again...

    He's not doing anything illegall, and seems like a good + "He play's a good game "

    There should be no punishment (He does enough to himself already)...just play ball, and put it behind you.

    If He continues to be a distraction, and continues to drink, or drug....His day's will be numbered anyway. There our plenty of guy's who have big problems with alcohol/drugs...and they don't even try to get help ?
