Re: The Official Billy Hamilton SB Record Countdown
Jamarillo is well-respected. My favorite quote (and one that may finally put to rest the Hamilton-has-no-power meme:
"No doubt about it, he'll definitely be a .300 hitter," the hitting coach noted. "He hits the ball hard when he hits it. If it's in the gap, it's a for-sure triple. He hit one today over the center fielder's head and it was the easiest triple you've ever seen. Coasting into third just to see if they're overthrowing the relay.
He may not ever reach 10 homers in a season, but a .300/.350/.400 line with 80+ SB at a good rate is a difference-maker, especially at SS.
