I don't neccessarily think you're wrong, but Hamilton could most certainly get there also. And while I know a bird in the hand... is it really worth giving up a very effective and cheap starting SS as well as the organization's #1 pitching prospect just to get something you may already have?
Not to mention cheaper, younger, and signed for longer...
