Happy Reds birthday, Josh Hamilton!

Hamilton

May 21, 1981

His star rose, then fell, then rose again, only to be toppled. Drugs are bad, mmmkay? Josh Hamilton, the 2010 AL MVP, is a man without a team. After five straight All-Star appearances, Hamilton faltered for the next three, and has not played in the majors since 2015. An amazing talent, but he couldn’t defeat his demons.
