    They will get another guy to team with Billy.

    But this kid is a major weapon, even when he doesn't go three for three.

    He will drive the opposition crazy. With a capital C.

    He escaped. But I'm not pleased with 3.2 innings leaving with the sacks full.

    Chapman was warming in the pen....for the Astros. Now he's in the game.

    The more we watch Hamilton play, the more his high prospect rating makes sense. I think we can start to put to rest the notion that "He's just fast."
    "Man, the pitch looks fast, even in slow motion." Thom Brennaman on Chapman's fastball.

    With Cueto looking good and two more off days, no need to focus on Reynolds. Like him or not, his role is probably completed.

    No one in Reds management will make choices on Hamilton based on a 3 hit night, when you have a season of AAA stats to look at.

    It's a nice night for Billy, but he's still the exact same player he was before the 3 hits.

    Mark David Chapman in to pitch for Houston.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    Does Jim Kelch seriously think Bill might still have a huge "tell" that he's about to seal a base?

    Seriously?

    I agree. Just my rebuttal to "he did his job".

    How has Hamilton looked in CF? At the plate?

    I tuned in late tonight and missed some of it.

    Billy should go for 3rd to give teams something else to think about.

    Billy Hamilton singles are actually Billy Hamilton doubles.
