    Josh Hamilton has a new babysitter

    Texas Rangers hire assistant to help support Josh Hamilton - ESPN Dallas

    Question for all the parents out there: how old were your kids when you stopped hiring babysitters for them?

    Re: Josh Hamilton has a new babysitter

    problem is, once he is not a MLB player no one is going to hire a baby sitter and he is going to turn to drugs and booze again......he will be dead 3 years after he is done playing.

    Agree. The Rangers are doing this solely to protect their investment and because they need his production. The BS about caring for him as a human being will end as soon as he is done being a player.

    I don't think the OP has any idea how tough addictions like that can be to overcome. Pretty shortsighted.

    There is a difference in having a discussion where two people disagree and calling each other ******** and alkies.

    Re: Josh Hamilton has a new babysitter

    Pay one guy $60,000-$120,000 to protect $15-20 million in production? Pretty good investment if you ask me, shoulda done it sooner and should probably be done more often.

    Dude has problems. Wish he could turn to control them. Addiction is a serious medical condition. Sad really.
