    Re: Make Billy Hamilton Available...

    I'm just curious. Why Hasn't Billy Hamilton been brought up this year? Is his nickname "Sliding Billy" by any chance? There was a "Sliding Billy" Hamilton that played in the 19th Century. His career actually lasted from 1888 to 1901. He stole 914 lifetime bases, including 100 or more FOUR TIMES. 111 in 1888 for the Kansas City Cowboys of the American Association. 102 for the Philadelphia Phillies of the National League in 1889. 111 for the Phillies in 1890. 128 for the Phillies in 1894.

    We reincarnated Billy Hamilton from the original because we're RedsZone and we're good!

    Angels have Trout, Bourjos and Josh Hamilton already for the forseeable future. They also have young 4th and 5th outfielders, Shuck and Calhoun. I dont think they would hold much value over Billy Hamilton.

    Theyd want young ML ready starting pitching after the Haren trade. Cingrani?

    Watched the Bats last night (went to see Ludwick, who looked good). Billy Hamilton can't hit to save his life, and the Bats had a good night against Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. It's like the ball is baffling him. Also, he looks very slight and short in comparison to the other AAA players.

    Didn't he go 2 for 4 with 2 SBs?

    I believe he was 2-5. Trust me, he didn't look good.

    Disappointing. I wonder what has messed him up so badly? I know the quality of pitching is a jump, but I also know that oftentimes it's not THAT great a leap...Hopefully it's a correctable thing and he can become competent at the dish.

    I would hope so...you can't coach the kind of speed he has. Even if it means a pinch-running gig, he should get a taste. I am talking when rosters expand, I would not include him on the post season roster however unless he proves he can hit a bit more.

    I disagree.....having someone you can toss in late in the game as pinch runner and scare the day lights out of the opposing pitcher when the 1 run is needed....or pinch hitting and the threat of a bunt does wonders against teams who are either up 1 run or down 1 run....some teams just can't play well when speed is on the base paths against them......I would love to have billy on the postseason roster.....it's not like he can't mirror what Ceasar is doing, at least for a few weeks.
