Hamilton needs to be hitting very well and have some sort of major injury happen in order for him to be up before late August/September IMO. He isn't on the 40 man roster right now, so when they call him up, they aren't going to do so with the idea of sending him back down at any point this season.
This Reds regime has been historically slow at promoting star caliber players. We'll probably have to wait until Opening Day 2014 to see him at the earliest. Never mind where is he going to play, and who are they going to take off the 40 man roster for him.

I'm not a man of many words. Read my posts, and you'll see what I mean.
Some people are Optimists (They see the glass 1/2 full).
Others are Pessimists (They see the glass 1/2 empty).
Me, I'm a Realist. 1/2 empty IS 1/2 full.
