    Jason Parks (Baseball Prospectus) Chat this afternoon

    http://www.baseballprospectus.com/ch...1351020719#new

    Some Reds related questions of note from the chat (that as I type this is ongoing)

    iorg34 (Peshawar): Will Billy Hamilton have success in MLB? What would you do with him in 2013?

    Jason Parks: Yes. I'm still a Billy Hamilton fanatic, but I've come a long way towards seeing his major league future. The speed is special, and I don't think that is lost on anybody at this point. The bat has improved, and that's the biggest factor here. If he can sting the ball, and give his legs a chance to make things happen, he has a chance to be a legit impact player and not just an impact base runner. Moving to CF will help his overall value, as the skill-set should eventually play at plus rather than as fringe-average or below, like it was at SS. Hamilton is a throwback player, the type to hit .280+ with twice the tripes as homers, 80+ steals a season, and at least solid-average defense in CF. His wheels could give him special range, which could make him an even better defensive force than I'm giving him credit for.
    pmuehlenkamp (Cincinnati): Obviously, Billy Hamilton is the Reds #1 prospect. Who is in the running for #2?

    Jason Parks: Robert Stephenson is legit. He will be high on that list.

    Parks also said he would be writing today about the AFL and Lutz in particular. I think this may be the piece but I do not have subscriber access.
