The point is that Billy was promoted very aggressively.
He got off to a very slow start at AAA but is improving.
There's no way I give up on Billy at this point.
Maybe Billy isn't ready until 2015. That's fine. It's not really fair to say that Billy is just a one dimensional player (speed). You got to give him time to adjust and develop.
Guy was promoted to AAA and had to learn a new position. Plus he started switch hitting after he was drafted. That's a lot to learn. He's still young. Patience.
There's no way I'd do that proposed trade with the Phillies either.
I wasn't insinuating that Hamilton's a bust, that's why I made a point to say " as of today ". What I was getting at was that his trade value probably isn't very high right now.
