I think you might be disappointed due to the 2 year deal Ludwick has and the way Ludwick pulled out of it last year as well, which Dusty will recall.
For Ludwick it seems to be a rhythm/preparedness thing. I believe he will find his stroke just like last year and have a great year.
But for Ludwick to do really really bad and Hamilton to do really really good it will take a lot of fortune. Also ahead of Billy is Heisey and perhaps Frazier, giving Dusty a lot of lineups to tinker with while the organization stays patient with Billy.
