Re: How good is Billy Hamilton?
I have a couple questions that tie in with Billy's situation going forward.
1) How easy would it be for the Reds to trade Ludwick in the offseason to a team that would pick up his entire salary? I'm not concerned with the return but the payroll relief.
2) How easy would it be for the Reds to trade Broxton and his salary? Again only interested in salary relief.
I believe these 2 guys would free up the money to budget in Choo and allow them to go with a Choo/BHam/Bruce outfield in 2014. I think it's clear the guy can contribute now and while he may not be up to the standards we want him to be it wouldn't hurt for Billy to learn from Choo & Votto about plate discipline and hitting ball opposite field.
