Josh Hamilton Got Injured And Dave Anderson Got Thrown Under The Bus

Ok, here are the facts:

- Josh Hamilton is out for six to eight weeks with a fractured bone in his arm.
- Josh Hamilton shouldn’t be out for six to eight weeks with a fractured bone in his arm because the play should’ve never happened.
- And lastly, Josh Hamilton shouldn’t be out for six to eight weeks with a fractured bone in his arm because the play should’ve never happened.

With that said, what occurred afterwards should’ve never happened either. Namely, third base coach Dave Anderson being thrown under the bus.

Now let’s take this one step at a time.

“It was just a stupid play,” Hamilton said after the game. “I definitely shouldn’t have done it. They had a good angle to cut me off where I was going. It was a little too aggressive.

“It was just a stupid play,” Hamilton said after the game. “I definitely shouldn’t have done it. They had a good angle to cut me off where I was going. It was a little too aggressive.

Was it stupid? Yes.

Should Hamilton have done it? No.

Does anything else need to be said about the situation? No. But unfortunately, Hamilton did.

“The whole time I was watching the play and I was listening. I was like, ‘Dude, I don’t want to go. Something is going to happen.’ But I listened to my coach and I went.”

So what does this unneeded statement accomplish other than throwing Anderson under the bus? Nothing at all.

Anyone watching the game or the replay would clearly see Anderson sending Hamilton home. So pointing the finger doesn’t really accomplish anything. Well, other than making sure that no one makes the mistake of thinking that Hamilton decided to make this “stupid” play on his own.

So now that we know that Dave Anderson is to blame for this “stupid” play and for Hamilton’s injury, now what?

It won’t bring Hamilton back from injury. It won’t help the team. And it probably won’t cost Anderson his job.

So why even do it?
