Hamilton is a big boom/bust type of guy, but he was also arguably the best athlete in the entire draft. Maybe I am just a sucker, but the coaches in the GCL certainly though Hamilton was a much better prospect than Silva was. Hamilton was rated ahead of Yorman Rodriguez at BA in the league rankings that are mostly done by the coaches in the league. Silva was unranked in the league.
Fair enough, another classic Heisey vs. Francisco battle to the bigs.
