    A contending team that would use him as a pinch runner and late-inning defensive replacement could sure use him.

    In the playoffs, when there are multiple off days so less pitchers are required, especially an American league team who needs less pinch hitters, a guy like Hamilton to be utilized as a pinch runner and defensive specialist could win you a game.

    We could send Senzel back down to learn how to bunt and play CF better AND possibly get another year of control if we left him down long enough. Let's make it happen!

    I remember one time going out to the mound to talk with Bob Gibson. He told me to get back behind the batter, that the only thing I knew about pitching was that it was hard to hit.

    he'll get a chance to see how those automated balls/strikes go in the atlantic league next year. (or maybe this year -- although he's already getting paid through the end of the mlb season, so probably not.)

    Billy Hamilton 2019

    .211 BA/ .275 OBP/ .269 SLG/ .544 OPS

    Out of 220 players with at least 300 plate appearances this season, his .269 slugging percentage and .544 OPS rank last in MLB.

    Great point, I agree. Postseason teams don’t need 12 pitchers.
