For Billy Hamilton, stealing bases is a learning process

CINCINNATI -- There is no debate that Billy Hamilton is two steps faster than electricity. There is a time, though, when even electricity has to be unplugged. Hamilton, a bolt of lightning on the basepath, has stolen 43 bases so far this season. And, alas, he has been caught 18 times. Stealing bases isn't as easy as it looks.

Reds looking to regain offensive mojo
