Re: Billy Hamilton continuing to excel at AA
Anything below 70% doesn't help the team.
Thankfully, Hamilton is well above that so for his career. As pitchers and catchers have to focus more on hitters and less on him stealing (ie, good hitters are going to crush fastballs if they're thrown every pitch he's on base), Hamilton's CS percentage isn't, IMO, going to rise all that much. I do believe he'll be more judicious with his attempts, however.
Still, a SS that can steal 100 bases in a year while only getting caught 25 times is a difference-maker to keep an eye on.
