Josh Hamilton requires Break to recuperate

Josh Hamilton, who is a slugger on the Angels baseball team, required some breathing space in order to recuperate.


Los Angeles Angels star Josh Hamilton was engaged in a sort of a conundrum. And now Josh Hamilton is not being included in the Sunday Series. The playoff will be against the Texas Rangers

As for the manager, he refused to give a straightforward answer about the case of the missing player. Mike Scioscia prevaricated and skirted the issue. 

He did say this much that the team’s management was going to give him a holiday or two so that he may refresh his mind. Of course, Josh was a fundamental part of the players in the long run. 

“We’re going to give him a mental break, let him exhale a bit and see where we are,” Scioscia said. “But our lineup, long range, has him in the middle of it, and we need him.”

Josh has been slugging five for 38 with 18 strikeouts in the last 10 games. "Yeah, I asked [Angels manager Mike Scioscia] could I have a day because I felt like I was spinning my wheels and felt like I wasn't getting anywhere," Hamilton said on Sunday after his team 3-2 loss to the Rangers . "So sometimes it's good to do that and take a step back."

The manager said that Josh needed to regain his lost mojo and so it would be best to give him a much-needed break. Surely, he would be back to play the game with gusto and zest by the time he recuperates from the stress. 

“We need to get him back to where his confidence is where it should be and he’s attacking the ball the way he can in the batter’s box,” Scioscia said. “And right now, we think that just taking a step back today is good. Tomorrow, he’ll get back in there.”

While Josh was hanging in there and hitting some home runs, he slowly ever so imperceptibly started sliding towards failure. He went into a nosedive and soon it was obvious that things were not good between the player and his game. 

"Josh is not the same as he was when we were looking in the other dugout in Texas," Scioscia said on Saturday. "Right now, he's not in the batter's box with the confidence that we know he has. He's working hard to try to find it."

And 33-year-old Hamilton agreed with his manager's assessment. "Yeah, that's the majority of what the game is about, having confidence in what you do and knowing you're capable of doing things on a daily basis to help the team win," Hamilton said. 

"The less successful you are, the less confidence you have, and so it's just a big cycle. If you can get some hits and some flairs and broken bats like that, it will help that confidence and hopefully those types of things will start happening."

So it is a much-deserved moratorium that is being given to this seasoned player to gather his wits and return refreshed and ready to take on the big time players on the opposing teams. 

Things were not going right and the dog days that had hindered the progress of the Angels had to be put to an end. The incubation period that Josh is being given will be an ideal vacation time for him to get some rest and relaxation. 

"Yeah, you think about playing, you think about you're going to have struggles. The whole reason guys are at this level, majority-wise, is because they can get out of their slumps and get out of their slumps quicker than most people," Hamilton said. 

"So I'm having a little trouble, something that never really happened to me as far as getting out of [a slump]. So I'm working on it and I took a down day today and rest my mind and stop thinking about it and pick it back up tomorrow."

 

Josh himself admitted this much that he was in somewhat of a slump and that he was having difficulty as regards confidence and faith in the process. 

Once he has a chance at stepping back and looking at his performance from a bird’s eye view, he may figure out what went wrong and return to the field a stronger man.
