I also have said that he could compete for future MVP awards if things go right for him.
So I would suggest that you do a little more research before you decide to try and throw my opinions out as the worst humanly possible.
I am not going to get into any more of your post because I don't feel like spelling out why fans should be hesitant on Hamilton right now for the 100th time.
I don't always agree with you, Doug, but I'll always acknowledge that you study the game (particularly the minors) far more than I do. Because of that, I have a lot of respect for your opinion. To that I'll add that it is refreshing to see someone who is able to evaluate the prospects of his favorite team objectively when the overall tone of this board is one of rampant, ridiculous optimism. It always makes me laugh when people post something about a projected Reds lineup and rotation two or three years from now and more than half of the players are still playing in AA or lower.
