When all is said and done, Hamilton will be a top 12 fantasy player by season’s end.
The RBI total is indeed ridiculous. But, say, he has a regression… what’s a reasonable regression. 25 RBI? 45 RBI? He’ll still have an amazing total.
Hamilton is the 2008 version of Ryan Braun, and I won’t chide anyone who decides to make him a #1 in the latter half of a first round serpentine, just like I didn’t do this with Braun this year.
This thought leads to probably the most important issue for BOTH Braun and Hamilton. Their home ballparks.
Braun will stay at Miller for certain with his new contract. If Hamilton does not get re-signed by Texas (he is currently hitting .347 at home), I think I might agree with you. Until then, I’m gonna cavil you until you beg for mercy.
