Except when it doesn't. Hamilton hit under .200 last year on balls hit to infielders. That is against minor leaguers on minor league quality fields. He isn't going to even be that good on grounders in the Majors. He needs to hit the ball into the outfield just like everyone else does. Sure, he probably legs out a few extra hits a year that other speedsters might not. Still needs to put it in the outfield.
With that said, he has been doing that this year just fine.
