He may not have a job at the moment, but Josh Hamilton put himself in the history books this season.  Hamilton, known for his power, blasted four home runs during a game against the Baltimore Orioles.  With those four homers, he also set the American League for total bases.   Hamilton did it on May 9,2012 capping a 9 year drought when Carlos Delgado was the last player to go deep for times in a game.  It was a great moment for Josh and all those who are currently struggling with addiction in that it shows there is hope.  He got clean and now he has a great career for himself including a moment in baseball history.  Hamilton has openly struggled with substance abuse which has made teams weary of signing him despite his talent.  I am sure that someone will see that the talent outweighs the risk of signing this superstar.
