    Do you still think there's no difference in accuracy between ERA+ and ERA-?

    WAR: -0.4

    Hamilton:

    Triple-Slash: .216/.284/.324
    wRC+: 70
    WAR: 0.8

    Hamilton has been bad, but Choo has been quite a bit worse, which is saying a lot about his season so far. At least Hamilton plays excellent defense and does not cost $13 million this year with a lot more money owed.

    I've said this before, and I'll say it again.

    Hamilton is not a starting-caliber player, let alone a leadoff hitter.
    He doesn’t hit for average, doesn’t get on base and doesn’t hit for power.
    I still firmly believe that he will be best used as a backup outfielder (a pinch-runner and defensive replacement in the late innings).

    I am timeless.

    And yes. Humiliation can be kinda fun sometimes, but you gotta use a safe word.

    That is the point, Choo has been quite a bit worse than Hamilton, who will likely be best used as a pinch-runner/defensive replacement.

    Here is another one created by you. http://www.redszone.com/forums/showt...hoo-comparison

    You really don't know he was injured last year and is coming off of elbow and ankle surgeries? Or pretend not to know?

    http://www.faketeams.com/2015/3/2/81...k-year-in-2015


    If he had played poorly when healthy, this thread might make sense. But that's not the case, as you can see below.



    As long as he's healthy, he will be fine, so don't worry about him and stop making a meaningless thread like this.

    For more information, http://www.redszone.com/forums/showt...mer-Reds/page6
    I can't tell if you're kidding or if you're really this stupid.

    Hopefully this clown and people like him are taken care of rather quickly, because this post is ridiculous and insulting.

    I only take smart ass comments from Raisor. And that's only because I know where he lives.

    Fair warning, I may try and turn "Do you want to be humiliated?" into a thing around here.
