Bryce Harper, Mike Trout ... you want to rein in those guys too? Yep, they're "outliers." So is our guy. Not the same kind of player, but definitely an "outlier."
Thanks for helping me prove my point, Doug.
Billy Hamilton is an outlier for being fast. He is not an outlier for being healthy. He is 22 years old. We don't know what he can do as far as health goes. Same for Harper or Trout. They are even younger than Hamilton is. I didn't prove your point at all. You are trying to make a connection to athletic skill to an ability to stay healthy. That isn't making your point at all.
And you really need to calm down with the "embarrassing" and "hello?!" stuff.
