Josh Hamilton: 'It's going to be good, folks'

Rangers outfielder Josh Hamilton said that he is looking at his day off as a chance to rest physically, even though earlier this week he said he feels out of sorts mentally.

Hamilton is out of the lineup Saturday against Chicago after opening this homestand 1-for-14. His batting average in July is .145. But he sees improvement coming.

"It's going to be good, folks," he said. "Fans out there, it's going to be good."

Hamilton said that he's in a good mood lately, and that he has come to realize that he has strayed from the priorities that keep his life in order, his faith being No. 1. Usually an open book, Hamilton stopped short of revealing what it is that is bothering him most.

"There's so much more involved. I don't know," he said. "I'm cool, man. I'm really good. The frustrating part is this [dealing with the media] and not being able to share everything with you guys. When the time is right, I'll be honest with you, you'll be right in the loop."

He said everything is good spiritually.

"I've been shown a lot of things over the past week," he said. "There's disobedience and there's obedience to God. I've been being disobedient. It may be a small thing to you, but it's a big thing to him. There's consequences. It's like a father and a kid. There are disciplines. You guys can chew on that and think about it."

Fans boo bercause they expect more out of him than they are seeing; both at bat and in the field.
I don't know where I heard this but
playing smart trumps ability.
The rangers too often don't make smart plays. I know they are in First place.
but first place is sinking fast.

So does this mean he's going to admit to playing games with the front office so they pay him now?

What the heck does any of that even mean? This dude talks in rittles. He's a head case, glad he is on the way out.

I'm sorry, but Christianity is not really a form of "self help." Your belief that Jesus Christ is your savior does not somehow allow you to transcend the human condition. That's the trouble I have with using faith as a form of addiction recovery or using faith as a form of relationship therapy. It uses magical thinking to frankly, existential problems that require serious thought and real contemplation about your existence and the cause and effect relationships that you bring about through your everyday interactions
