The Rangers said through a team spokesman that they are "aware of a situation but have no further comment at this time."Cheap burberry - designer bags, shoes, accessories, clothing outlet 2012.
The news was first reported by The Dallas Morning News earlier Thursday.
It's unclear exactly what happened, but Hamilton has attempted to stay sober since an incident in a Tempe, Ariz., bar a little more than three years ago.
Then, he was photographed drinking with several women and those pictures went viral about seven months later. Hamilton spoke to the media about it at that time and apologized, saying: "I hate that this happened."
When that occurred, Hamilton immediately called the Rangers and MLB. He passed a drug test shortly thereafter and went through league-sanctioned counseling. Hamilton also made sure his support system was fully in place, including having Johnny Narron, his "accountability partner" at the time, with him at spring training and through the rest of the season.Burberry watches, designer burberry watch cheap outlet 2012.
Right now, Hamilton and the Rangers are still in the process of finding a new "accountability partner" after Narron took the job as the Milwaukee Brewers hitting coach. Hamilton's father-in-law, Michael Dean Chadwick, was planning on taking over that role for Narron but didn't want to leave his teenage daughter as she gets closer to finishing high school.
The Rangers have expressed an interest in signing Hamilton to a long-term extension, though both sides agreed that if a deal wasn't in place by the time spring training starts later this month that they wouldn't talk during the season to avoid any kind of distraction.
The 2010 AL MVP has worked to avoid even the smell of alcohol, something his teammates have respected. They have even catered their postseason celebrations for him (and former teammate C.J. Wilson who also didn't want to be around alcohol) by having Ginger Ale and water showers before breaking out the champagne after winning a playoff series.
Hamilton said in Aug. 2009, when discussing his last relapse, that it was the first drink he'd had since Oct. 6, 2005, when he vowed to stay sober. Drugs and alcohol helped delay Hamilton's track to the big leagues and despite being the No. 1 overall draft pick in 1999 by the Tampa Bay Rays, he didn't make his major league debut until 2007 with the Cincinnati Reds.
The Rangers traded for Hamilton prior to the 2008 season, cheap moncler vest sending right-handed pitcher Edinson Volquez and left-handed pitcher Danny Ray Herrera to the Reds for the outfielder.
A league MVP at 22, Derrick Rose is still young enough at 23 to get a kick out of being selected to the All-Star Game.
Rose was named a starter for the Eastern Conference team Thursday — his third consecutive All-Star selection in his four-year career and second consecutive start. He was the second-leading vote-getter on the Eastern Conference team behind Orlando Magic center Dwight Howard and third overall behind the Lakers’ Kobe Bryant.
“It means a lot, especially from our fans to vote for me,’’ said Rose. “I didn’t [realize] that I had all those votes. It shows a lot. I don’t take anything for granted. I’m appreciative of every one of my fans that went online and voted for me.”
The All-Star Game will be played on Feb. 26 in Orlando. Reserves, who are voted on by the 30 NBA head coaches, will be announced Feb. 9.
Rose will be joined in the starting lineup moncler jackets by Howard, the Heat’s LeBron James and Dwyane Wade (1,334,223) and the Knicks’ Carmelo Anthony.
The West starters are Bryant, Oklahoma City’s Kevin Duran, the Clippers’ Chris Paul and Blake Griffin and the Lakers’ Andrew Bynum.
