Re: Will Billy Hamilton be moved to CF?
Joey Votto was playing his High A in an offensive suppressive league (think Petco) while also being forced to not swing at the first pitch of every count he faced all season. Hamilton is in an offensive boosting league (think Coors) and can swing whenever he wants to.
Joey Votto was a much better hitter as a prospect than Hamilton is. It isn't close at all. He walked a lot more, hit for a ton more power and struck out at an acceptable rate.
And yes, Bruce had otherwordly numbers compared to Hamilton. At this point in his career, Bruce was in the Majors after obliterating AAA at age 20/21.
