Billy Hamilton is still ridiculously fast

Via Wezen-Ball, who breaks down all the numbers on the speed of Hamilton’s “trots,” comes Billy Hamilton being Billy Hamilton:

Hamilton is not having the greatest season at Triple-A Louisville. He’s hitting .248/.315/.349 with 30 steals in 53 games. Which is good, but not for him.  Given that the Reds are loaded and winning like crazy this season it’s unlikely we’ll see Hamilton in the bigs this year.  But we should definitely root for him to go on a tear so that he may be in Cincinnati’s plans for 2014 so we can see all that speed all the time.
