BILLY HAMILTON RUMORS

Aaron Hicks’ amazing plate discipline

When you think of Aaron Hicks, you probably think of speed and defense. There isn’t much to say about the offensive side of his game, as he slashed a meager .217/.281/.336 last season and .223/.299/.346 for his career. Heck, even his speed mostly manifests itself on the defensive end, as he doesn’t steal many bases or post particularly strong baserunning scores. He’s essentially...

Billy Hamilton, the Absolute Freak

Some people track the passing of time through watching their children. Other people track the passing of time by looking at what time it is, and comparing that to a previous time, from back in the past. I tend to track the passing of time by thinking in baseball terms. I can’t really help it, and sometimes it takes me by surprise. It feels like just yesterday that Billy Hamilton...

Report: Reds open to dealing Billy Hamilton

What’s Happened On Billy Hamilton’s Weakest Contacts?

Exit velocity! We love it! Sorry for shouting. But we do! We love to sort the leaderboards, and we love to write articles using the information gleaned from those leaderboards. This is one right here! Beat writers love to tweet the exit velocity when a player they cover dongs a dinger, and even the folks who don’t always love the application of exit velocity in the public sphere...

VIDEO: Billy Hamilton ran really far to make a catch

Billy Hamilton has Major League Baseball’s fastest home run trot…again

Last year, Major League Baseball introduced new measurements to keep track of different components of baseball that had been previously tough to record. They include spin rate, home run distance, and batted ball speed, to name a few. One component of the game it also measures more accurately than before is home run trot speed. Yesterday, Billy Hamilton set the record for the fastest...

Billy Hamilton’s Problems Aren’t Limited to Fly Balls

Billy Hamilton did last year what we all were afraid he’d do: not hit. Somehow, despite a .274 on-base percentage, Hamilton managed to steal 57 bases, which is exactly why his shortcomings at the plate can be so frustrating — think of what he could be if he just hit a little. Despite missing some time to a shoulder injury and being one of the 10 or so worst hitters in baseball...

WATCH: Billy Hamilton steals third on throw back to pitcher

By Darren Hartwell Billy Hamilton might be the fastest man alive. OK, that’s probably an exaggeration, but after watching what Hamilton did Saturday night, you’ll understand our reason for hyperbole. The Cincinnati Reds outfielder was on second base in the third inning when Miami Marlins pitcher Adam Conley missed with a ball down in the zone. But when catcher J.T. Realmuto...

By Gordon Dixon During Saturday’s game between the Brewers and Reds, Cincinnati’s speedster Billy Hamilton apparently lost his supply of bubble gum while in center field. Fortunately, his Milwaukee counterpart provided ample replacements.
