I also believe he'll end up at 1B, and think he should be moved there this coming season. Might make him feel more involved as a player than standing in the OF.
“I’ll just take my walk,” he said, to laughter. One reporter followed up that Hamilton might be able to score from first on a single. “If he does, that’s great. Isn’t that crazy? Think about that: I hit a single and got an RBI. Like I said, crude stat, right?”
