Why isn't Hamilton being considered? I haven't heard a reason other than "he isn't." What's wrong with having great pinch runner on the bench?

You know, I know bringing Hamilton up might be considered "gimmicky" by the Reds, but it's a gimmick I would love to see! I'm never going to see him live where he currently plays, but I would really enjoy seeing him steal some bags in person.

His debut would probably be a sellout.

Screw gimmicks....he's the most feared baserunner since Vince Coleman.

For promotion to the bigs one must be on the 40 man roster. Hamilton is not.

Looking forward to seeing Gregorius and glad to see Mesoraco back. The others, meh, not so much. Redmond I've already seen enough of.

But isn't there a spot open?(Costanzo)?......How hard is it to put someone on the 40 man?......Can't be rocket science.............then again we are talking about the Reds FO.

If Hamilton is not on the 40-man, PUT HIM IN!

He's more valuable than than anyone else in AAA. You could argue Stubbs could be the pinch runner and be wasting a spot but that's assuming Bruce in CF/Frazier in LF. That's not gonna happen.

If you put him on the 40 man roster, you can't take him back off without going through waivers. If he isn't major league ready and won't be next year, then you would have to take up a 40 man roster spot all of next season. Plus it starts his arbitration clock. While I'd love to see him, we don't need him...... yet.

Not much help here...only warm bodies to give the regulars some time off before the playoffs.

Plus if he doesnt make the big league club out of spring training...they would have to use one of his options to send him back down.

Most importantly, for the future, he will be playing in AFL, and, apparently the baseball Gods have been listening, he will be playing-------in the outfield!! If he adapts, and his bat keeps pace, say hello to the new CF about May-June next year.

That is not an issue, move Bray from 15 day to 60 day DL

I didn't realize this until recently and it completely sold me on not bringing him up under any circumstance. It would be idiotic to start the arbitration clock on a guy who probably isn't ready for the bigs until 2014. If you want a pinch runner, Gregorious and HRod both have pretty good speed. Not Hamilton territory, but better than the Reds current bench.
