Billy Hamilton went 2-for-5 with one RBI, three runs scored and a stolen base in the Reds 7-3 victory on Saturday.
It was a nice day of setting the table for Hamilton who has now hit safely in five of his last six games and is batting .273 on the year. The .301 OBP, of course, leaves little to be desired. Hamilton's 43 stolen bases this season have been great for fantasy owners, but let's face it, he's nowhere near the pace for the 75 stolen bases most of those who drafted him were expecting. If you were able to draft him late, then you got a nice value, but if you reached for him like many did , say in the fifth, then you're just not getting what you should be. Especially when you could have had Dee Gordon a dozen rounds later. ANALYST: Howard Bender
