Re: Hamilton Called Up
Sorry, Spitball. I also don't think that it will happen nor do I want it to. Gotta' agree with Doug here. Why 'downgrade' SS defensively here, which Hamilton is likely to be, as well as have a less likely hitter with with less power.
I think that this 'callup' will likely result in Hamilton learning how to find GAB---not in any significant playing time, mostly Pinch-running, maybe a few CF defensive fill-ins in blowouts and learning what it's like to be in 'the Bigs'.
Plus, I'm happy with the way that Cozart has hit lately. (I have somewhere I have to be or I'd look up his numbers since he was dropped out of the #2 hole.) Other than possibly stealing a base in a playoff game and maybe putting a few more people in the seats, I don't really see a lot of advantage to this move. I'm guessing that Hamilton will play AZL Fall League or some 'winter ball' to speed his progress to full-time arrival, next spring.
