Josh Hamilton, a victim, a villain, someone to be idolized, or something entirely different? You decide.

One of the first stories I published here on "The Athlete's Sports Experience" at Chicagonow was about Josh Hamilton and his "comeback story."

The title of that piece, Texas Rangers' Josh Hamilton: Great Comeback Story ?????, left it open for readers to decide whether his tale was one of triumph, a positive example for others, or one that should be vilified, a negative example and (momentary) waste of highly touted talent.

Now that the Texas Rangers, and Josh Hamilton, have competed in the 2010 World Series, I thought it might be interesting to reference that article from last February (click title link above) and see what your thoughts are on the question(s) posed in my previous piece.

Has anything changed based on what Josh, and the Rangers, have accomplished this season? Place your vote using the poll below, and if nothing hits you as a great choice feel free to take a stance leaving your opinion in the comment section at the very bottom of the post.

Would love to hear from you!!!
