    Hamilton suffers fractured hand

    I saw a tweet today to Fay about Hamilton having a fractured wrist while playing winter bal. Of course, Fay is horrible at his job and is oblivious to what's going on. I don't know if it's true or not, guess we'll have to wait and find out.

    RT @ShinyKefka heard Billy Hamilton fractured his wrist yesterday in winter league, true?//hasn't played since 11/17. Had not heard that

    EDIT: Just did some digging, Hamilton does in fact have a fracture, but it's his hand.

    On the plus side, hand injuries tend to sap power and Hamilton doesn't have any power to sap.
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    Broken leg would be much more worrisome in Hamilton's case.

    Albert Pujols has nothing on Slidin' Billy.

    Hamilton has fully recovered from a broken hand suffered in winter ball, John Fay of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    A summer watching a bad Reds' team, is still a pretty good summer.

    HAMILTON OK: Billy Hamilton’s Winter Ball season was cut short by a fractured hand.
    “It’s OK now,” he said. “I wanted to go back, but it was too late.”He injured the hand sliding.

    Saw him at RedsFest. No cast or splint, said it was fine.
