    That's why I think if BillyH gives us elite defense in CF and OBP 315-320, he's going to be adequate. Not an allstar, but definitely adequate.
    I'm coming around to the argument that .315 to .320 might be livable. What I can't get past is that he was at .308 in AAA this year. I just refuse to assume he'll do even a point better in the big leagues. I'm guessing .250 to .275. I'd say for me to have some confidence that he'll reach .315 to .320 in the big leagues, I want to see .350 in AAA. Until then, he's a last resort, not a guy to plan on.

    Having better players makes "the right time" or "the big hit" happen a lot more often. PLUS PLUS

    Why does everybody ignore the obvious comp? Vince Coleman. His minor league numbers look a lot like Hamiltons....

    Coleman:
    A (21) - .350/.431/.399 - 145 steals
    AAA (22) - .257/.323/.334 - 101 steals

    Hamilton:
    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).
    Are defensive metrics wacky, or is it that defensive metrics are very wacky? Discuss.
