Billy Hamilton is absolutely a guy you give a shot with an milb contract and big league invite. You dont trade a top 20 prospect for him. You can't steal first base. Marisnek, Cordell, Lagares, keep the prospect.

Oh my god they actually traded one of their top 15 prospects for 2020 Billy Hamilton 🤢🤢 https://t.co/YLpN6ZeNsr

@MikeVacc Mets traded for speedster Billy Hamilton, an especially perplexing move for Van Waganen given that he's 154 years old and died in 1940

Aug 2020: Humphries is traded to SF for Billy Hamilton, who was a free agent when the Mets traded for Marisnick. Hamilton takes over Cordell’s role, making his spot on the 40-man superfluous and proving the decision to DFA Humphries in the first place even more perplexing.
