Texas Rangers manager Ron Washington said Wednesday that he agreed with CEO Nolan Ryan's take earlier this week that Josh Hamilton sometimes gives away at-bats.

The manager, on The Ben and Skin Show on ESPN Dallas 103.3 FM, said Hamilton wants to perform, but that he needs some more patience.

"A lot of people see things, but they're afraid to say it," Washington said. "That's a fact. He has to stop giving away at-bats, get a little patient, bring the balls in the zone. That's a fact. That's not something someone is making up. That is the fact. Nolan sees it, I see it. Everyone else see(s) it, they just don't say it."
