And to the original poster of the thread that called me crazy as well- you're the tool who put him on the list. If you don't want to consider him why the heck did you list him for??? I'm not guaranteeing I'm right, no one can do that, but i hate it when people view THEIR opinions as the absolute law and MINE are completely wrong and worthless. I think Hamilton will be this generations Rickey Henderson or Lou Brock. That's my opinion and I'm entitled to it. He'll give you runs, decent avg .280, lead the league in steals, and is slated to play on a powerful offense in a hitters park with Votto and Bruce to knock him in. Rizzo, meanwhile, is playing with legendary stars that are David Dejesus and Darwin Barney.
I'm sorry I responded to this dumb thread. I hope Hamilton runs over all of your teams.
No reason to throw a fit is there?
I'm the one who said it was crazy btw, not the OP.
It was no slam on you, as i didn't quote your name at 1st.
It was just bad advice imo.
You guaranting that Hamilton breaks with the club?
Brock and Henderson are bad comparisions, they could hit.
Hamilton has Bourn, Dee Gordon speed, and will likely will be Bourns bat best case scenerio, Gordons worst case.
Rizzo is batting in the heart of the lineup. He's playing, and has some MLB abs.
Hamilton has neither right now.
As of right now, Rizzo is the better keep.
Maybe in a year it could change, but you want to win now.
