    You have a lot of free time, related to him, or work for the org/in baseball?

He has the range, easily, and his arm will play there just fine.
    When you say he has the range, are you saying he'll be around league average? Or are you thinking above average to whatever extent?

    Had a chance to see Hamilton play this last Wed. Granted it was only one game, but I don't see it. Listen the kid can fly there's no doubt, but he's got to get on base first. He's NOT a shortstop. I'd say he probably has a below average arm for a second baseman let alone ss. Hope he proves me wrong because he can really cause problems on the basepaths combined with the fact that the Reds really don't have anything down the pipe at ss.

    Re: Billy Hamilton

    After watching the Reds game tonight, can someone give me a comparison on Hamilton and Dee Gordon? Obviously Hamilton still has a ways to go and things can change, but I'd love a scouting comparison.

    From a pure tools standpoint, they are extremely similar. Speed, range, arm are all similar. The one major difference between the two guys is size. Both are slight of frame type guys, but Dee Gordon is 5' 7", while Billy Hamilton is 6' 1". I think that could come into play one day in the future when it comes to projecting their bats. I don't expect either guy to hit for power, but I think Hamilton has a better chance to hit a few baseball's over the fence one day than Gordon does. With that said, Hamilton is quite a ways away from the day.

    Not sure what the definition of "down the pipe" is ... but if it means what I think it does, you might want to read up on Zack Cozart.

    Is Hamilton really 6'1"? The spring training game that I watched made me think he's 5'10" at MOST. Obviously I'm watching from a computer monitor, but I had heard other people comment that he is "tiny". Also, Scully said on the broadcast that Gordon is 6'0", and ESPN has him listed as 5'11".

    Hamilton is faster than Gordon correct?

    I've seen both in person, and whatever their actual height is, Hamilton has at least 3 inches on Gordon, maybe as many as 5.

    Here's a pic of Gordon next Ethier, who is 6'2".
