Let's see Hamilton hit pitchers who can locate their secondary pitches before we assume he's going to have a 10+ year major league career.
Completely agreed. Rickey Henderson is one of the all-time greats as far as I'm concerned.
I just wanted to provide what I believe could be Billy's ceiling if he adds some power to his game.
I just think that Billy Hamilton can have a much better career than Tony Womack did. Billy is a world-class athlete. Even if he fully developed, it would be very difficult for Billy to have a Rickey Henderson-like career.
