Prior to Tuesday, there was probably no active player in Major League Baseball that Texas Rangers fans hated more than Josh Hamilton. Ian Kinsler may have changed that when he ripped his former team in a recent interview and said he hopes they go 0-162 this upcoming season.
Shortly after Kinsler’s comments went viral, Hamilton sent the following tweet:
Not any fun being in the Texas doghouse, is it @IKinsler3?

Seems like he’s enjoying the company, no? Hamilton erased any positive feelings Rangers fans had toward him when he called them “spoiled” and said Dallas is not a baseball town. He was later booed mercilessly when he came to town with the Los Angeles Angels and even needed to request extra security for his family.
Kinsler should expect the same reaction from Rangers fans when he visits with the Detroit Tigers.
