MLB: Josh Hamilton's slump

Angels outfielder Josh Hamilton says a sinus infection has been affecting his performance for the past 10-to-14 days. But Hamilton, signed as a free agent for $125 million, has been struggling at the plate all season. His .214 batting average and .364 slugging percentage entering Wednesday's games are both well below his career averages. Should the Angels rest Hamilton? Will he snap out of it and go on a hot streak, as he's done before? Or does he need to overhaul his swing and approach at the plate to turn it around? Vote below!
