I know speed isn't everything, but dude is REALLY FAST!
I just think it'd be kinda neat to have the fastest throwing pitcher and the fastest runner on the same team. Combine that with the Living Legend Votto and a sick starting rotation and it'd be a great time in Cincy.
He seems to be a name being tossed around for a trade by seemingly everyone on this board.
It saddens me to see so many people not even want to see what he can do in a Reds uniform.
Reminds me a lot of my days on reds.com (puke) when Chapman was in AAA. Soooo many people wanted to trade him before he even came up.
All I'm saying is you don't find guys like Hamilton every day. Special kind of speed and I'd love to see him be a part of the starting lineup.
I like Hamilton, and I think he will be a good player. I am very excited to see him play for the reds. But if Walt can use him to get someone like Stanton, I see it as a no brainer.
