We have all been waiting for the arrival of Billy Hamilton and with his performance on Wednesday night in Houston, its safe to say Hamilton has landed safely. Last night, Hamilton showed what he could do with the opportunity to play in a full game. Hamilton responded to his first major league start by going 3-for-4 and reaching base five times and he had four stolen bases in the 13-inning game, and eventually scored the game-winning run after drawing a walk, stealing second -- on a pitch out-- and scoring on Jay Bruce's third double of the game. Hamilton now has nine stolen bases in nine attempts since being recalled from Triple-A. If your a fantasy owner that stashed this speedster, you can sit back and enjoy the ride. If your in a keeper league, Hamilton must be kept for as long as your league rules allow you to keep him because he may just win you the stolen base category all by himself.
