The Josh Hamilton Experiment isn't working out so well in Anaheim
A few months into his tenure with the Anaheim Angels, there haven't been any off-field issues, but his hitting has been absolutely atrocious.
Angels manager Mike Scioscia has just dropped Hamilton down to 7th in the Angels lineup, hoping that it will take some of the pressure off him and give him a chance to figure things out.
Hamilton is currently hitting only .210 with 10 HR and 24 RBI nearly halfway through the season, far below his career averages.
Before coming to the Angels, Hamilton his .305 and made the All-Star game every year in 5 seasons with the Texas Rangers. He hit .359 in 2010, but has fallen a long way since then.
After this season, the Angels are still on the hook for $98M over the next four seasons, so they're desperately hoping that Hamilton can find his way back to success and help their offense get back in the swing of things.
Do you think that'll actually happen? Or is this contract one of the great albatrosses in MLB history?
