Re: Justin Upton...again
That's not true, dunner. Hamilton has speed (an 80 tool if ever there was one), the hit tool (a 330 average over his past year's worth of ABs), and, if moved to CF, both the glove and arm tool grade out as plus-plus. (One scout insisted he could move to CF today and become a Gold Glover next year in the majors.)
He is also patient at the plate and showing an improvement in pitch recognition, not to mention the kind of athlete that makes plays no one else makes in places no one else makes them.
Hamilton could be a game-changer at the top of the order. And that's worth quite a bit.
