Law, in full smug mode, said: "He can run. He can't hit. Good luck."
And now we know why Keith Law -- who is about as much of a talent scout as the local drunk at the corner bar -- is no longer working for a MLB team, but is spouting off BS for ESPN.
Wow...that's aggressive. He did catch a lot of flak for what he said about Harang a few years ago. Seems like he wasn't wrong about that. And has anything been proven about Hamilton at this stage? Law scouted him during ST and said that he really needs to get stronger. Did you see that? I recommend it, because it makes sense.
But why the general feeling of animosity for Law? I really don't get it.
