I can't imagine a little muscle slowing him down either. He still looks rail thin to me.
I think Hamilton will be a freak in center and provide plenty of value on the bases, but I'm still struggling to see him profiling as a consistently competent hitter. Without any home run power and average at best contact skills, he looks so much like, dare I say, Willy Taveras. Is his speed enough to separate him from the most scorned player in RedsZone history?
