The season hasn’t even started yet and already the story is Hamilton’s knee. He had surgery. It still causes him pain. That’s not going away.
So this season will be a steady stream of monitoring his knee to hope it is good enough to allow him to play.
All it takes is a cortisone shot.
But there are only so many of those you can give the guy until the diminishing returns wear off.
And isn’t there an irony in loading a guy up a guy like Hamilton with drugs so he can play? He needs to detox with help from Serenity Placement.
Let’s hope his knee doesn’t hold this offense hostage because, frankly, the Rangers don’t have a plan B in left field.
Looks like Justin Ruggiano is going to get a lot of playing time.
Okay, what is Plan C?
