I have watched billy several times in person....I have watched Drob about 4 times in person....once as a starter and 3 times as a runner or late defensive replacement....Drob is fast, real fast and billy and him might be close when it comes to actual times.....but billy is on another level when he hits the ball and and is running the bases....he could use some help in the first move department when stealing but he more than makes up for it.
With that said, billy needs to be on the playoff roster...plain and simple. We could use 2 speed guys. It's the playoffs, you play each game like its your last so it's not like our starters need rest. Bench players are strictly pinch hitters, or runners...we should have at least 1 if not 2 pitchers that can come in from the pen and go deep if that's what's needed.
Billy Hamilton hits ground balls to 2nd base and the second baseman has to rush the throw each and every time.
