The postseason starts in less than two weeks and the Los Angeles Angels have to start shaping up their roster. Bookie software users know that the biggest question mark for the team is what to do with injured left fielder Josh Hamilton.
Hamilton has only played in one game since September 4 because of a left shoulder injury and his multiple injuries and lack of consistency at the plate makes some people wonder if he should be a part of the team’s postseason roster?
Well, the Angels have a roster full of a few veterans and many young players. The team has not been to the postseason since 2009 and they only have ten players with postseason experience, including Hamilton.
Hamilton played in the 2010 and 2011 World Series against the Giants and the Cardinals while with the Rangers, both resulting in losses though, but he is a legitimate power threat.
That being said, Howie Kendrick has done a good job replacing Hamilton in the fourth spot in the lineup behind Mike Trout and Albert Pujols, and the offense as a whole has been explosive, so Hamilton might not be needed. It will be interesting to see what the Angels will do and how it works out in the end.
