Should Josh Hamilton Join the Phillies?
Now, don’t get too excited: There’s not much evidence such a plan is happening. But the folks at the Bleacher Report say free-agent slugger Josh Hamilton would be a great fit with the Philadelphia Phillies’ aging core. But Hamilton also has an infamous past as a drug addict who washed out of baseball entirely at one point. No worries. “Philadelphia has dealt with baggage before, and will embrace any player that gives their all on the field and helps the team win, which is exactly what Hamilton will do,” writer Garrett Baker says. “He is not only a great hitter but a smart all-around baseball player who plays a good outfield, possessing underrated athleticism and a strong arm.” [Bleacher Report]
