Re: Billy Hamilton: #1 on the BA Hot Sheet
Toughness is another thing I like about Hamilton. You don't get offered D-I football scholarships unless you're tough. You don't play every game during the baseball season unless you're tough.
No question he's an elite athlete. Off-the-charts speed, great toughness, shows the ability to improve at a rapid rate, and shows good range as a shortstop (you know, only the most-important defensive position on a baseball team). I still think he will be a second baseman in MLB most likely (or even a CF) but go tell Brandon Phillips that should be something to be ashamed about.
