Re: Billy Hamilton: #1 on the BA Hot Sheet
Both Votto and Mesoraco, other high school players, developed a ton after they left Dayton. No reason to believe that Hamilton can't do the same thing.
I'm not convinced that Hamilton is going to stay in the infield at all, but if he turns into a centerfield version of Vince Coleman, then he is still a useful player. He may "add power" in the way that Davey Concepcion did, but he's never really going to be a power hitter.
"Even a bad day at the ballpark beats the snot out of most other good days. I'll take my scorecard and pencil and beer and hot dog and rage at the dips and cheer at the highs, but I'm not ever going to stop loving this game and this team and nobody will ever take that away from me."
