Bonafides From 2002-2012: 2004 ALCS MVP, 4x All-Star, 2x Silver Slugger Award Winner
There's no accurate word to describe the life of Josh Hamilton in the last decade. The Texas outfielder went from being touted as the next big baseball superstar to losing it all to getting right back into the swing of things. After getting his off-the-field issues with drug addiction and alcoholism sorted out, Hamilton took a second hack at getting into the MLB. But it wasn't until he was traded to the Rangers in 2008 that his career took a meteoric rise which culminated in his 2010 AL MVP season where he hit .359 with 32 homers and 100 RBIs. How this guy doesn't have a movie made about him yet is remarkable.
