It's possible you're not surprised by Josh Hamilton's drug use and (if you're not a baseball fan) it's possible that that's all you know him for. That's fair. But when the Devil Rays took him with the first overall pick in 1999, they couldn't have envisioned that he'd go from this, to this, in just under two years. Professional sports organizations have protocols for passing on guys with "character issues" but it's difficult when those issues don't arise until after you've already drafted them.
