If the Los Angeles Angels are smart, they’ll go a step further than the Rangers did with their support staff for Josh Hamilton.
Like Yu Darvish, he apparently needs a translator.
Because in five years with Texas, all of them in a national spotlight, he didn’t learn that it’s not what you mean that’s nearly as important as what you say. To say nothing of what you do. In an interview that aired Sunday night on CBS-11, Hamilton told Gina Miller that “there are true baseball fans [in Dallas-Fort Worth], but it’s not a true baseball town.”
It doesn’t really matter what else he said during the interview. Or the context.
The damage is done.
