Re: Should the Reds rein in Billy Hamilton?
I was going to question the OP's theory using Rose as an example also. Harper is another who plays all out all the time in DC. Most don't question it based on wear and tear so much as about making better decisions when on the basepaths or playing the field. Think that's the majority view here on this thread with Hamilton; that he needs to learn the finer points of stealing bases and lowering the CS rate.
After catching the full Nats at Reds series last weekend, I took a trip down to Louisville to see Hamilton. Will post a bit about that experience on a different thread but, suffice to say, I was very impressed. He went 4 for 5 Monday night with a couple stolen bases and a very nice diving catch for an out in center field. Really something. Tough to form a full judgment on one game like that (he didn't do anything last night from the boxscore) but it was really something to watch.
