    Reports are Josh was spotted drinking at a bar in DFW. I'm sick to my stomach thinking about it,and hoping it isn't true. If it is, 100% blame on Josh, but shame on whomever served him and sat next to him drinking.

    Night ruined.

    News said he was with Kinsler.....

    There has also been no wait staff from the bar that has said he was drinking. The Rangers said they are aware he was there and won't comment. I think this is being blown out of proportion. He may not have even been drinking, he may have drank......and while I understand a addict of his level is to have 0 consumption.....it isn't like he was found in a Tijuana hotel with a needle hanging out of his arm.

    Let's wait for solid details.

    I agree 100%. Just saying it is being reported. I truly hope it isn't true. If Ian was there, I will be irate with him. Again, if Josh drank, he is at fault. But that will piss me off if Ian was with him.

    I hope this gets cleared up quickly.

    Just read it should like Ian tried to get him to go home. Shouldny have jumped to conclusions, which I guess is all I'm doing anyway.

    Hope it's nothing, but I hate even hearing about the possibilty of it.

    Please God don't let this be true. Josh has demons inside of him he will have to hold back for the rest of his life. I can't imagine how hard it must be. Praying hard for him tonight, even if this is just a rumor.

    This is pretty sad. He has a lot going on in his personal life right now that drove him to this, or so he says. He had a good press conference though.

    Good to know Kinsler wasn't helping him relapse.

    Said he went to get something to eat where he had 3-4 drinks, and then called Kinsler to come join him. He said he hid it from Kinsler that had drank and didn't drink while they were together. The talked about their families, baseball, and stuff like that. Ian said he needed to get back home so he took Josh back to where he was staying. He asked Josh if he was going to stay in and not go back out, and he said he was staying in. When Ian left he went back to where they were at and had more to drink. He said he had a weak moment as a result of a situation he is having with a family member.

    He talked for a while, but that about sums it up.

    It appears that the liar did a good job of hiding it from Kinsler but not from the rest of the patrons of the bar. Or the nasty he banged in the stall.

    This is only going to get worse. Supposedly somebody is shopping around pictures/video of a sex act Josh was involved in at the bar in the restroom. He's married with a few kids.

    Luckily it would be illegal for a news station (or anyone for the matter) to purchas and/or air them, per an article I read. Still a horrible situation.

    If such tape truly does exist, I would hope Josh or the Rangers would double the supposed 40,000+ and buy it to kill the situation before it even has a chance to spread further.

    I have heard that Josh is no longer living with his wife and kids. I forgot where I read it but I don't doubt it.
