Since everyone is so head over heels about Hamilton, why not? Defensively, this should be a wash or maybe a slight improvement with Hamilton. Freel could then be the speed off the bench the team needs and he could obviously still fill in for when Junior or Phillips need a day off. You could bat Phillips lead off since this 3-hole thing isn't exactly working as planned.
I think you've gotta at least give this a few tries to see how it plays out.
