    Truly an absurd accomplishment at this point in the year.

    There is an outside chance that Theo Bowe could make a run at 100 this season as well. Griffey lets those guys run at every chance they get.

    Insane that could approach 100 and be dwarfed by Hamilton. I still can't even fathom this. It's July 3rd!

    As of a few days ago Theo Bowe was 5th in all of minor league baseball with 39 steals. Hamilton had 90 something.

    100? He seems a lot younger. That one is for Camisa.
    Zero chance the Reds miss the playoffs!

    I thought Hamilton is hitting .330.

    So how much of the minor league season is remaining? I'm assuming that it's more than 1/2 way through. Otherwise, Hamilton's already incredible SB totals become absolutely cartoonish (as in, not possible in the real world).

    Thanks Doug. I went to the Blaze web site and saw that in 78 games Hamiliton has 100 SB. That would be an average of roughly 1.28 steals per game. If he plays in the remaining 58 games, that projects to 74 more steals. So he could potentially have 174 SB by the end of the season. I also read somewhere that Coleman (ex-Cardinal) has the minor league record at 140 something. So, Hamilton could potentially blow away the minor league record. Wow!

    Record is 145.
    http://www.milb.com/news/article.jsp...vkey=news_milb

    Hamilton jokingly told MiLB.com in May that his goal is to double last year's mark of 103. But next up is Nixon's Cal League record and just beyond that is Vince Coleman's Minor League best of 145, also set in 1983, in the South Atlantic League. The Mississippi native seemed confident that he could potentially reach both numbers before season's end.

    "I mean, it's possible," he said. "I think 144 is possible, but I'm not saying I'm going to go out and get 144. I knew [103] would be tough to double, but I didn't set any goals. I just want to get better, come work on my jump and whatever happens, happens."
