Hearing what he does is like what I imagined it'd be like as a fan before TV or radio and hearing the tales of Cool Papa Bell.
I'd assume, like others, that he'll get called up when rosters expand. I hope he can start drawing walks. With him that could be as good as a double.
Late inning, down a run. LFer hits a double, put in Hamilton as a pinch runner. He will drive pitcher's crazy.
He got to a gapper REAL fast that one hopped the 405 sign in Huntington Park up there in Columbus yesterday. I thought he might have a shot at it when I saw where it was headed (only because of who he is). No one else would have even been close. He had an INF single yesterday, ricocheted off the pitcher and went to the second baseman. Not shot at all whatsoever to throw him out.
