Re: Two national guys chime in on Billy Hamilton today
I can absolutely see both sides here. I have seen Hamilton on some good days where he stings several balls on a line into the gaps. I have also seen Hamilton flailing away at pitches with weak, defensive swings early in counts in what I saw as an attempt to merely make contact, no matter how weak.
He certainly doesn't have bat speed problems. It is there. His swing mechanics from the left side leave a lot to be desired, but the pieces are there to work with, which is good.
