    If Hamilton is awesome, I will incur a bit of JEALOUSY from my friends for being a Reds fan. THIS NEVER HAPPENS.
    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    Nice start

    Yeah but there's nothing wrong with being excited. It's a game and we're not playing so the best we can do is be excited for a kid trying to make a come back who could help our team. I don't care if it's one game I'm pumped about Hamilton and I'm gonna be pumped about him until I have a reason not to be.

    nothing wrong with rooting for someone who's been thru what he's been thru. Thats what baseball is all about ups and downs.

    I'm pulling for Josh if for no other reason than the lack of OF prospects in the system after Bruce (not sold yet on Stubbs).

    Conine should NEVER enter the discussion for the OF depth chart. That's the absolute dumbest part of the OF competition. Deno and Hamilton shouldn't be "competing for the 5th OF spot" either. Deno should already be a lock for the 4th spot, at worst. Hamilton should be competing for the 5th spot with Crosby and Hopper.

    Here, here, from yet another Tar Heel! With the way the Heels are looking going into the final stretch, I may be even more excited (is it possible) for the start of the Reds season!

    As a propsect, he was noted as being an outstanding defensive outfield, being able to play all 3 positions very well. Plus, he has an absolute cannon for an arm. I read that in high school, he threw out a guy trying to score from 3rd on a sac fly on a ball that was hit to the warning track...just missing a homer. Obviously he wasn't throwing out Freel or a speedster trying to score, but none the less that is an incredible feat to accomplish.

    and a question....if you are a team trying to figure out who to keep...Chad Moeller or Josh Hamilton, really, does that even justify a thought? I really hope we don't go down the 3 catchers path again. Freel can catch in emergencies if needed. no reason to waste another spot like we did last year.
