Red's fans have been raving over the newly acquired Rule 5 draftee Josh Hamilton. Josh's story is a very intriguing one, going from a first round pick with huge upside to a druggy who ruined his life. But this all changed when Cincinatti decided to take a chance on Hamilton and select him with their selection in the Rule 5 draft. So far this deal is paying off immensley as Hamilton is exploding in his first training camp with the Reds. He has a .595 average with 1 HR and 6 RBI's in 31 AB's and is figured to be the starting centerfielder for Cincinnati with Ken Griffey on the DL. If this move pays off for Cincinatti in the end, Tampa Bay will have a hard time knowing that he could of roamed their outfield for many years to come.
