Jay's all of 21 years old with barely 60 MLB games under his belt, and already we're calling him Norris Hopper and Corey Patterson? If you expected Bruce to come in, hit 30 HRs and OPS .900 as a 21 year old rookie, no wonder you're disappointed.
Would I love to see Hamilton in the Reds lineup? Heck yes. But let's cut out the mind-numbing comps for a moment, please.
