Tim Cowlishaw does a good job mining for quotes here, and he comes up with some hits:
Rangers Ron Washington on Hamilton slump: "They're getting Josh out because he's not showing any patience. He's not making any adjustments."— Tim Cowlishaw (@TimCowlishaw) July 21, 2012
More Wash on Josh: "Josh is a free swinger. That's an adjustment he has to make. I've seen him make it. But it seems like it bores him."— Tim Cowlishaw (@TimCowlishaw) July 21, 2012
Now, obviously, we don't have the full, unabridged quotes from Wash here, and Twitter's space limitations do carry an inherent risk of lost context ... but doesn't Wash's last sentence on Josh seem kind of damning? I'm not the only one who's a bit taken aback, am I? He's not explicitly throwing Josh under the bus here, but it seems apparent that he's fed up, and if the manager feels that way, I wonder how many other people on his coaching staff and/or within the upper levels of the organization share Wash's growing sense of disgust.
This is a troubling situation.
