Re: Article: Player comparisons for Billy Hamilton
Hamilton's got more power than Wiggins. Wiggins never slugged higher than he obp'ed, if you can believe it.
That's some seriously poor power.
My (not so) secret dream comp for Hamilton is Brett Butler. I'd gladly take Rafael Furcal, too, but with more speed. Early career Tim Raines would also be great. (Though, as the article suggests, that's likely not going to happen.)
