And you really need to calm down with the "embarrassing" and "hello?!" stuff.
I'm perfectly calm. It's called adding some personality. You should try it sometime.
And Billy Hamilton is an "outlier" in that he's one of the top-20 baseball prospects on the planet. He's more than just "fast" or we'd be talking about track and field, not baseball. The point is that you don't take elite athletes who have a history of staying healthy and try and "rein them in." That could change how they play and you don't want to do that.
