Re: Billy Hamilton: #1 on the BA Hot Sheet
The thing with Hamilton is going to be putting the ball in play. Not too many pitchers are going to walk him, simply because he could be standing at 3B within a couple pitches to the next batter. I think pitchers will attempt to pitch him in the strike zone just to keep him off the bases. If he can learn to protect the strike zone and lay off the pitches out of the strike zone, with his speed, I'm not sure he will need very much power.
You just don't want him turning into Deon Sanders, the guy who could fly, but just couldn't get on base.
Opinions are like belly buttons. Everybody has one, and they don't want someone else's shoved into their face.
