And I swear I'm not knocking you at all, it's just that we won't know for sure how his speed will play until he is actually in the bigs.
Oh I agree. I am definitely in the "let's wait and see" camp when it comes to Billy Hamilton. I am not a fan of speedy, slap-hitting players in general. I prefer sluggers. Hamilton will have to prove his value to me. It is interesting to discuss all the ways that his speed could factor in to the game. As Plus Plus has described, some of that value may not be adequately factored into his WAR score.
