Hamilton re-signed

Coming off of a MVP season, Josh Hamilton was rewarded with a two-year extension.

Texas Rangers outfielder Josh Hamilton has been re-signed to a 2 year, $24 million deal. Hamilton was the American League Most Valuable Player in 2010 and led the Rangers to their first World Series appearance. Hamilton hit .359, slammed 33 home runs, and added 100 RBIs, despite missing almost the entire last two months of the season. The 29-year old was the first overall pick by the Tampa Bay Rays in 1999, but his career was derailed by alcohol and drug use. In 2007 Hamilton made it to the big leagues with the Cincinnati Reds, and was shortly traded to Texas, where he has made a name for himself, becoming a leader.
