Table of Contents Here’s the table of contents for today’s edition of Daily Notes. 1. Crowdsourcing: Billy Hamilton’s Whole Career 2. SCOUT Leaderboards: Arizona Fall League 3. Pretty Excellent and Recent Video of Joe Panik Crowdsourcing: Billy Hamilton’s Whole Career Reds prospect Billy Hamilton has earned considerable attention from prospect analysts for possessing what is likely generational footspeed — nor did he do anything to dim their enthusiasm this past Saturday, during the Arizona Fall League’s Rising Stars Game, stealing two bases and also reaching on a drag bunt. At the same time, he’s showed little power (7 HR in 1711 PA) and was recently moved off of shortstop (to center field). What we want to know is, “What will Hamilton’s career look like, ultimately?” Please answer mostly that same question right here: Loading… SCOUT Leaderboards: Arizona Fall League SCOUT Leaderboard: Arizona Fall League Hitters (Overall) Below is the current SCOUT batting leaderboard for the Arizona Fall Leaague. SCOUT+ is calculated using regressed home-run, walk, and strikeout rates, where 100 is average and above 100 is above average. (Click here for more on SCOUT.)
