SURPRISE, Ariz. (CBS SPORTS) – One of the most surprising things about the recent relapse by Rangers outfielder Josh Hamilton was that he involved a teammate, Ian Kinsler, in his night of drinking. On Sunday, Kinsler spoke publicly for the first time since Hamilton’s January 30 night out. He said that he didn’t see Hamilton drinking that night, but Kinsler has heard the rumors that he was drinking with the slugger. “I was there. I know what happened,” he said. “People can say what they think was happening or what they want to say about the situation. There were, seriously, eight people in that bar. I don’t know how many people were focused on us. We weren’t out in the middle of the bar.”
