Must-Click Link: How Josh Hamilton got where he is today

6 Comments

Some of you may be tired of Josh Hamilton: Human Interest Story, but it doesn’t get old to me.  He truly was a can’t-miss prospect, and the way he’s hit so hard these past few years makes us wonder what might have been had he had a normal path of development and if he had broke in sooner.

The latest pass at this story is by Jennifer Langosch of MLB.com, and it’s a good one.  Best read it to get some depth and nuance now so you can more easily mute the TV when Tim McCarver stumbles through some variation of “yeah, he, uh, has really come a long way, Joe” tonight.
