JOSH HAMILTON WILL MAINTAIN HIS LOYALTY TO THE RANGERS IF HE BECOMES FREE AGENT
Wed, 29 Feb 2012 10:11 AM EST

Texas outfielder Josh Hamilton asserted that he owes the team all of his aspiration and focal point for 2012 and that if he moves to become a free agent after this season, the 1st call he is making is to the Rangers’ front office.

“If it does go to free agency, the 1st place I’m coming is here,” Hamilton said. “If I owe something, it’s that. My fidelity is here. This is where I’ve been. Here is where my family’s been, so clearly I’d love to stay here more than anywhere else. So 1st off, they get an opportunity to do what they have got to do to maintain me here.”

His agent and Rangers recently put off conversations on a new agreement after Hamilton had a relapse with alcohol. The outfielder has been troubled by drugs and alcohol throughout his professional career. Hamilton claimed he doesn’t expect to get into any long-term deal talks with the club this spring or during the season, but he didn’t close the door to negotiating in the season.

“If it’s in the season, I’m not going to know about them mainly because I’ve asked not to know about them,” Hamilton declared. “I believe in my representative. He is not only my agent, but a close associate and mentor of mine, somebody I’m going to for information and I really trust. I leave that up to him. I just say call me when there are a few things worth speaking about.”

“I’m just going to leave it up to him. If they approach him and he feels like it is something to move forward with, I will leave it up to him. It is not going to be something I am concentrating on,” he said. Basketball betting lines

Hamilton will produce $13.75 million this season as part of a 2 year deal he signed last offseason that finished his settlement years. If the club and Hamilton don’t reach a long term contract before the end of the season, the 30-year-old will turn into a free agent.

Hamilton was questioned about his contract and said he failed to feel he owed the Rangers. Basketball lines

“The Rangers have done a lot for me, but I have got a query for you all: Have I done a lot for the Rangers? I suspect I’ve given them everything I have had,” Hamilton claimed on Friday. “I do not think any person can say I haven’t. When it boils down to it, folks do not understand, fans do not understand, this is an organization, this is an entertainment business.

Hamilton stressed that he does owe the Rangers all of his effort in making 2012 a flourishing season. And he promised to work toward that goal.

He said he’s received lots of support from followers, some of whom told him they were emailing the Rangers to tell the club to re-sign him. But Hamilton said he knows there are fans who don’t think the club should bring him back.

“There’s going to be people that do not like what I say if they do not get all the information,” Hamilton recounted. “At the same time, there’s going to be a few folk that do not like it or don’t get it, but there’s a load more than that scattering that really do get it and support me.”
