Absolutely. doug and M2 are both right-- he's the most fascinating case in baseball right now for just about every prospect hound in the game and for most of the sabre community. (Though Mike Trout might also have something to say there.)
Hamilton's speed-adjusted WAR could very well double the next highest person on the list. He could be the Babe Ruth of the WAR speed set. And that makes me giddy.
Imagine a line of .225/ .320/ .380 with a WAR in the top ten of the game.
Could very well happen.
