JOSH HAMILTON

http://hardballtalk.nbcsports.com/2011/07/08/how-does-josh-hamilton-recover-from-this/related/ I feel just as bad for him...for those of you that dont know baseball....He was the #1 pick in the 1999 MLB draft...at first didn't live up to expectations...because of that went through a deep battle with drugs, alcohol and depression...battled back from all of that and really has played well pass couple seasons leading RANGERS to the world series last year as well as taking home A.L. MVP honors...How does he recover from this????

okay... 1-no way should you

okay...

1-no way should you feel just as bad for josh hamilton. Hamilton did nothing wrong and hes not dead

2-the guy who fell over died and that sucks. But lets be real. None of us knew him and he died becasue he did something stupid. If you felt bad for every human who you didnt know and they caused their own deathby making a mistake then you would be in mourning 24/7.

wow

Are you a licensed psychologist???...I can't feel sorry for someone that dies so tragically in front of his son because I don't know him????....I cant feel bad for Josh Hamilton because he is a very sensative person and will no doubt feel responsible to some degree(not that he should)...but he will...I guess I have more compassion than you...no need to tell me how I should FEEL though!!!

1-i didnt say you shouldnt

1-i didnt say you shouldnt feel bad for josh hamilton, not sure where you got that from. I said you shouldnt just as bad for him which you stated you did. How do you feel just as bad for a guy who did nothing wrong and walks away fine as opposed to a guy who died in front of his child and is gone forever?

2- you can feel for the guy as much as you want. He died falling over a railing chasing a baseball. I never met him and i know he did something stupid and killed himself. I could say im upset, but i would be lying. I read and hear about deaths every single day of my life. i would be the most depressed person in the world if i was sad for every guy who did dumb stuff and killed themselve.

Maybe that was the way God

Maybe that was the way God intended for him to Die..That was only a 30 foot fall..When i was a kid, we use to visit my aunt who lived in the country and we use to jump off 40 & 50 feet houses and nothing happen..And everyday you hear about a child falling out of 60 & 70 foot story buildings and they survive...The terrible thing about is that the guy's son will have that image of his dad falling playing over and over in his mind..

Sad

I feel for everyone involved, especially the young child. Even though Hamilton didn't do anything wrong, it's one of those things that you don't want any part of being associated with. When all is said and done, the man made a choice to go after the ball. You see a lot of people going for balls with no consequence and to be honest I'm surprised more people don't get hurt. Hamilton did what is pretty common when players pick up a foul ball. For Hamilton, he's been through a lot already and I guarantee the next time he picks up a foul he's always going to have that in the back of his head.

As far as how he died. 30 feet is a nice drop, especially when you land on your head or neck, which it looks like he was doing. For all of those people and children falling out of buildings, the only reason it's a big story is when the people surive because it is so rare. Typically a person is going to die from such a fall or sustain massive injuries, especially a baby.
