Why does everybody ignore the obvious comp? Vince Coleman. His minor league numbers look a lot like Hamiltons....
A (21) - .350/.431/.399 - 145 steals
AAA (22) - .257/.323/.334 - 101 steals
A-AA (21) - .311/.411/.420 - 155 steals
AAA (22) - .256/.308/.343 - 75 steals
I'll take a pre-(fire)crack Vince Coleman with better D on a rookie contract. Let him steal 100 bases a year, it'll be fun to watch.

Total Zone credits Shin-Soo Choo with the most runs saved in the NL (27). DRS has him giving up the most runs in the NL (-17).
