It doesn't matter what message board posters think, it doesn't matter what Goldstein thinks, and it doesn't matter what some anonymous scouts think. As long as the guys who are running the Reds player development system feel like Hamilton has a chance to stick at SS, they aren't going to move him. Their opinions are the only ones that matter.
How do you know for a fact that the scouts quoted don't work for the Reds? Or that Redsof72, who has a lot more inside knowledge than you or I do, doesn't know what he's heard? The guy knows prominent people inside of the Reds organization. Maybe you missed that memo.
At the same token, I'm going to trust Goldstein and these other people over your opinions, no offense. These guys have some established credibility.
