    I don't think he'll be a bust. In fact, I"ll change my mind and say he makes it to the majors. But I don't see him as being as good with the bat as Choo is.

    My worry is that Hamilton will be a faster Willy Taveras.

    I'm enjoying Choo. Loving him, actually. What scares me is the choosing-up-sides that's going on right now with Choo and Hamilton. Billy is one of the best prospects in the minors and we have no reason to believe he won't be the disruptive force he appears to be.

    toledodave agrees in principle, but would need a peek at the balance sheet to know if it's feasible.

    Their minor league numbers are quite different, and I don't know if you've seen Hamilton play, but if you have, I doubt you would have that same worry.

    He doesn't have much power. His OBP is going to be batting average driven, imo. He's going to have a slim margin of error.
