THIS MESSAGE ISN’T COMING FROM SOME GUY THAT’S NEVER PLAYED THE GAME AND IS SITTING IN A GM’S OFFICE RUNNING THROUGH EMAILS FROM UNINFORMED MEDIA PEOPLE. THIS MESSAGE IS COMING FROM ONE OF THE GREATEST PITCHERS, ONE OF THE GREATEST PLAYERS, ONE OF THE GREATEST COMPETITORS, A HALL OF FAMER, AND ALSO, THE CHAIRMAN EXECUTIVE OFFICER OF A FRANCHISE THAT IS DETERMINED TO GET BACK TO THE WORLD SERIES AND WIN IT.

JOSH HAMILTON IS A PRODUCTIVE BASEBALL PLAYER, HE’S NOT HALL OF FAME MATERIAL, HE’S NOT A GREAT OUT FIELDER, HE’S NOT A GREAT 1ST BASEMAN, HE’S JUST A GUY THAT’S HAD SOME GOOD YEARS UP UNTIL THE 2012 SEASON, AND HAS BEEN PAID EXTRADINARY WELL FOR HIS RESULTS. BUT, HE’S ALSO ON THE DECLINE, THIS PAST YEAR WAS AVERAGE, UNRESPONSIVE IN THE CLUTCH, AND BASED ON HIS POOR ATTITUDE AND POOR PERFORMANCE RESULTS  DURING THE MOST IMPORTANT RUN IN THE TEXAS RANGERS 2012 YEAR,  WHICH OCCURRED AT THE END OF THE YEAR WHILE THEY FELL FROM AN EXCELLENT LEAD TO A TIE AND EVENTUALLY A LOSS TO THE OAKLAND A’s.

JOSH HAMILTON WAS INEFFECTIVE, MADE TOO MANY ERRORS, DIDN’T GET THE BALL OUT OF THE PARK WHEN IT MATTERED, AND LEFT TOO MANY MEN ON BASE DURING THE RANGERS FINAL  GAMES OF THE SEASON.  AT BEST, HE GETS A  2YR, $27,000,000.00  CONTRACT, WITH A YEAR ADDED @ $15,000,000.00 IF HE’S HEALTHY, REACHED THE PARAMETERS WRITTEN INTO THE FIRST TWO YEARS, WHICH EQUATES TO A 3YR $42,000,000.00 DEAL.  HEY JOSH, TAKE IT, OR LEAVE IT, BECAUSE THE RANGERS CAN DO MUCH BETTER GOING YOUNG AT HIS POSITION, AND GETTING REPS FOR SOME OF THAT YOUNG TALENT THAT THEY HAVE AVAILABLE IN THE ORGANIZATIONAL FARM SYSTEM.

THIS MIGHT SEEM A BIT TOUGH, BUT NOLAN RYAN IS TOUGH, PLAYED TOUGH, WON TOUGH, HALL OF FAME TOUGH, AND WILL GET THE JOB DONE WITH OR WITHOUT JOSH HAMILTON, SO JOSH, IF YOU WANT TO SATY WITH A WINNER, GET THE EMAIL TO CEO, NOLAN RYAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
