Hamilton looks good. But only cause teams don't have a gameplan on him. Same story with a lot of new guys in the league. Teams start keying in on player tendencies and they adjust.
I may seem like a disgruntled EE owner. But, Edwin Encarnacion has shown serious potential at third base.
It's interesting -- and admittedly this is a strange tangent -- over the past four years, the Reds had two other players who suddenly put up tremendous numbers in Wily Mo Pena and Jose Guillen. I don't remember the team handing them starting jobs. Hmm ... what do Jose Guillen and Wily Mo Pena have in common that Josh Hamilton doesn't?

I have a #1 priority and no one else I'd consider cutting at this point - thoughts?

It is ridiculous to compare him to Shelton or Guillen at any level. This is not to say that he will not run into stumlbing blocks this season - he is a rookie who took several years off and never played above AA. And there is risk long term since we really don't know know whether he is a Strawberry type of guy who will fall of the wagon repeatedly. But he is definitely not a flash in the pan in the Shelton mode.
