Rangers slugger Josh Hamilton sidelined for two months

Rangers outfielder Josh Hamilton made a costly decision in the first inning of todays game and will be sidelined for two months with a broken arm. Hamilton called it a "stupid play," and blamed his third base coach for the miscommunication and how it all turned out.

"The whole time I was watching the play, I was listening (to Anderson say), ‘Nobody’s at home. I want you to go. Nobody’s at home,’" Hamilton said. "I was like, ‘Dude, I don’t want to do this. Something’s going to happen.’"

The Rangers are one of the more aggressive teams in baseball, but this trait proved fatal today and now players like Michael Young and Mitch Moreland could see more time in the outfield. 

“I listened to my coach,” he said, “and I went.”

Not only do the Rangers have a serious problem with Hamilton on the shelf, but they could have a internal rift developing if it continues.
