Angels OF Josh Hamilton reacts to booing from home fans


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/8/2014) Angels embattled outfielder Josh Hamilton, who never completely regained his stroke after thumb surgery in April and sustained more physical problems in September, has addressed the boos he received from the home fans during a hitless division series.

"It's frustrating, but there's nothing you can do about it," he told the Orange County Register. "The injuries weren't like hamstrings. When you play the game you are going to get hurt. You can't control that unless you play soft, and that's a whole other issue."

Hamilton played just 89 games and finished with 10 home runs - none at home. He batted .263 with 44 RBI before going 0 for 13 in the brief playoff run. That performance resulted in boos and a quizzical reaction from Hamilton.

"I thought it was pretty funny, after my third at-bat of the first game, I got booed," he said. "I'm like, seriously? I'm out for a month, put all kinds of poison in my body to even attempt to play, and get booed? Whatever. It's kind of comical. I don't take offense to it because they don't know me. There is no personal interaction."

Hamilton, who added that the rib pain is gone, said he will play in the division series, which starts next Thursday, even if he can't go this weekend in Seattle.

"There's no sense in me coming back and having an issue," he said. "I can just use the extra days and then play. I know you guys think, 'Well, he hasn't had any at-bats, how's he going to feel, blah, blah, blah.' It doesn't really matter."
