    That's funny coming from a chronic whiner about others views. If you want to argue PM me otherwise let's move on, I have.

    Two major arm surgeries before they both reach the age of 24? Because it definitely could have been that.

    Worry about what could have been in 10 years when we know how it played out. Pretending to know now is just silly.

    Well I would argue that Billy Hamilton's potential is much higher than Mike Leake's, Aaron Crow's or Tanner Scheppers too. But its still about risk/reward. Both Crow and Scheppers have some pretty serious question marks on their resumes (Scheppers a whole lot more than Crow).

    Really? I'm not questioning you, but what does Hamilton really project to do down the road? I get that he's fast, but is that where all his potential lies?

    I seen some Carl Crawford (and to a lesser extent Billy Hall) comps for him, assuming a lot of development. Fast as lightning, strong arm, fairly sound RH swing but still has holes in it (learning to hit LH), good outfield instincts. Negatives are a lack of power, crude approach (judging from the reports probably swing happy and overly aggressive), and not a natural SS.

    Basically a very raw guy but not so much in the athletic arena (there he is fabulous) but just baseball polish overall.

    So you don't even want to argue about the Reds being "cheap?"

    I am always going to give an above average every day guy a bonus over a very good starting pitcher. The key word was potential and Billy Hamilton, while really raw, is an absolutely incredible athlete. His potential, if realized, is incredibly high. He could be a shortstop or center fielder with an outstanding bat and a very good running game. Do I think he is light years from that potential as a baseball player? Absolutely. But his potential is indeed there to be an incredible player.
