Re: Hamilton:Is this the way we keep him in the minors?
As long as he can play above-average outfield defense, he'll have value to the team as Dunn & Griffey's late-inning replacement.
I'd say it's a virtual certainty that Hamilton makes the team this season. Hopefully its at the expense of the 12th pitcher. Given his arm in the outfield, Hamilton would probably have a better chance to retire batters from the mound than that 7th guy out of the 'pen anyway.
