That's what speed does, Mike, that many disregard because it's not quantifiable.
What's really cool is the idea that Hamilton can get to 3B faster. He wasn't running full-tilt boogie until after he rounded the bag at first. That speed is just incredible. I've watched prospects for 15 year or so, and he's by far the fastest guy I've seen in terms of affecting the game. He uses it as the weapon it could be.
