So, lest anyone accuse me of being unfair where Josh is concerned, I liked seeing this:
“It’s going to be good folks,” said Hamilton, who gave a ‘thumbs up’ and smiled for the cameras. “Fans out there: It’s going to be good. Just hang in there.”
"I feel beat up," Hamilton said. "I see it more a physical day off. I'll get some treatment and things."
Hamilton said he hit in the batting cages for two hours Saturday, working on things. He was upbeat at his locker and said the slump is both mental and physical.
Good. He needs to be much, much better. I'm glad he's putting in the work and getting a breather, seeing as how he's physically out of sorts.
The FWST, however, printed the rest of Josh's quotes, and I can't recall the last time I came away so confused from a simple string of player comments:
Hamilton said that he's in a good mood lately, and that he has come to realize that he has strayed from the priorities that keep his life in order, his faith being No. 1. Usually an open book, Hamilton stopped short of revealing what it is that is bothering him most.
"There's so much more involved. I don't know," he said. "I'm cool, man. I'm really good. The frustrating part is this [dealing with the media] and not being able to share everything with you guys. When the time is right, I'll be honest with you, you'll be right in the loop."
He said everything is good spiritually.
"I've been shown a lot of things over the past week," he said. "There's disobedience and there's obedience to God. I've been being disobedient. It may be a small thing to you, but it's a big thing to him. There's consequences. It's like a father and a kid. There are disciplines. You guys can chew on that and think about it."
I thought about it. I'm still lost. Anyone else got anything?
