2018 FANTASY BASEBALL LINEUP ISSUES: BILLY HAMILTON BATTING NINTH FRIDAY

                                                                  

Add Cincinnati Reds manager Brian Price to the growing legion of MLB managers who choose to bat their pitchers in the eighth slot as that is exactly what he is doing for the team's Friday game as Price had decided to insert starter Homer Bailey in the eighth spot and use 2017 leadoff man Billy Hamilton out of the nine slot.  The main fantasy baseball issue here centers on Hamilton who of course will have a better chance to pick up steals batting leadoff and also bad his run totals but Price had hinted at making such a move during spring training.  It shouldn't come as a shock really as Hamilton is not a classic leadoff hitter since he doesn't draw walks and his pure hitting ability leaves a lot to be desired.  While no one doubts his 60-steal speed, Hamilton is as much a one-trick pony as you can get when it comes to 2018 fantasy baseball and he remained grossly overpriced at the draft table.
