Former Rangers GM: Hamilton shouldn’t blame third-base coach for broken arm
“No team in baseball went from first to third more times than we did last year,” Grieve said. “Aggressiveness on the bases is something we do every day.”
Grieve said it’s always tough with Hamilton because he plays so hard and he does get hurt.
Dan asked him about Hamilton’s comments he didn’t think it was a smart play and he disagreed with the third-base coach sending him. “Then he shouldn’t have gone,” Grieve said. “The play was right in front of him. He had the same look the coach had.”
Grieve said Hamilton probably wouldn’t normally called out the third-base coach, but they caught him at exactly the wrong time.
Grieve said the medical staff is responsible for being careful with what they give him since he’s a recovering addict, and not rushing him back too soon. Grieve said last year they might have rushed him back to be ready for the playoffs.
