The Dallas Morning News is reporting that Josh Hamilton was spotted drinking in a Dallas area bar on Monday. As a Rangers fan and a Josh Hamilton fan, I'm a little sad. Sad that he still fights those addictive demons every day.
My father was an alcoholic who didn't drink the last 20 years of his life. He still fought those same demons from time to time, but he always said the longer he went without drinking, the easier it was not to drink.
I know a lot of people will jump up and start bashing Hamilton because he's an outspoken Christian. They'll say he's a fraud and a bunch of other trash. Being a Christian doesn't make a person perfect. It just means they're forgiven.
I hope Josh, his family and the Rangers can work through this latest setback. I hope so for Josh's sake. His health and well-being have to come first. After all, baseball is just a game.
