I agree that Hamilton is very intriguing as a CF solution, but fall in with the school that thinks he should stay at SS as long as he shows the potential to play it.
That said, it strikes me that the pairing of Hamilton and Lutz is just about precisely what the big club needs. The trouble with the lineup is the absence of both a leadoff hitter and a cleanup hitter (or at least another middle-of-the-order guy if Bruce is finally allowed to clean up). Hamilton and Lutz are tracking to fill those voids ideally. I only wish they were another year and a half or so along in their development. We'll simply have to wait for the pieces to fall into place.
