Reds center fielder Billy Hamilton is of course renowned for his footspeed. The question, though, is whether his bat will play at the major-league level. On that point, it's worth nothing that he entered Friday's contest against the Cubs with a 2014 batting line of .170/.220/.234 with 11 strikeouts against just three walks.

Let us christen this effort, "harvesting wheat with low-slung scythe." It's a useful swing when it comes to ... harvesting wheat.
