But man, this kid might be a star someday. Let's don't disrupt his development, especially when it's only a marginal at best improvement.
The Reds made a mistake and called up Homer way too early. Had they been more patient with Homer, he might've "clicked' earlier.. Maybe not, but at least Homer would've been spared all the barbs he got from being thrown to the wolves too soon.
Even if Hamilton ends up only becoming a middle-of-the-pack CF, it's another great success story for the Reds' farm system. A farm system needs to crank out the Cozarts, Frasiers, LeCures, and Heiseys along with the occasional star.
I totally see where you are coming from and really I'd agree. I just wish baker would go with Robinson in the two hole and it'd be a non issue for me. I was thinking by bringing billy up it may force his hand
