I think a better comp for Hamilton is Otis Nixon. They really seem to be very similar players, even shifting from SS to CF before reaching the majors.
Sabermetrics can be boiled down to this simple truism: A batter's goal is to extend the inning. Extend enough innings and you're going to score runs. Extend more innings than your opponent and you're going to score more runs than him.
