  1. Pullin had a .789 OPS at home (83 at bats) and a 1.302 OPS on the road (74 at bats) going into tonight's game. In tonight's away game he went 2 for 4 with a HR and a double.
  2. Another away HR tonight (his 6th) . In addition, his home OPS was 1.010 (82 AB's) and his away OPS was 1.026 (70 AB's) coming into tonight's away game.
  3. I had him on my prospect roster last year and realized the power just doesn't seem like it's ever going to be there (kinda tough for a corner outfield profile). He looks to have great instincts and could definitely be an asset in an OBP league if he could win a regular job.
  4. I'm a Phillies fan, so I'd love to see it as much as the next person, but you can't force a call up when the player blocking you is playing well. Joseph was horrible to start off the year, but has been red hot lately (another HR for him today) - if Joseph reverts back to his early season form it wouldn't surprise me to see Hoskins up in June, but for right now to call him up they'd need to remove another player from the 40 man roster as well as bench a starter who doesn't deserve it.
  5. He's not on the 40 man roster which always complicates things in addition to Tommy Joseph playing much better lately which gives management two built in legit excuses to continue to wait on a call up. The Phillies also aren't going anywhere this season with or without Hoskins so they have no reason to rush him up.
  6. I couldn't possibly agree more, which is why I indicated I was fairly certain (obviously can never be 100% certain) that what was stated was code speak for "he's being kept down for team control reasons".
  7. I'm fairly certain the "need to see proof", "no hurry" approach is simply organization speak for "won't be called up until we're 100% sure we get an extra year of team control out of him".
  8. Still there as far as I can tell:
  9. Yeah, I'm having very similar issues and the owner won't budge. I think the key is ultimately going to be offering something we're not willing to part with instead, so I'm carefully analyzing future strengths and weaknesses on my dynasty team to try and figure out which prospect I'm not willing to currently trade that will leave the smallest hole position wise. It's beginning to look like a scenario that will be worth it in the long run.
  10. There has been no official confirmation, only speculation on Tommy Pham/Harrison Bader. Given that they've lost both Piscotty/Fowler and have an open spot on the 40 man roster, it's at least a possibility.
  11. I feel like I read this exact same analysis with respect to Giolito (not from you, but in general) a year ago.
  12. Here's the existing thread on him: http://forums.rotoworld.com/topic/596358-delvin-perez-ss-stl/
  13. Indeed. It's a 16 team league too, folks were stating before the season started I was looking like the team to beat. Right now I'm the team everyone wants to play, haha. It's almost comical at this point.
  14. In one league: Starting Lineup: Lucroy/Morales/Villar/Bregman/Correa/Springer/Polanco/Bautista/Piscotty/Bird Rotation: Lester/Verlander/Carlos Martinez/Quintana/Maeda/Lackey/Gsellman/Velasquez Anyone want to guess what place I'm in?
  15. Thanks Hanghow - it's actually a "draft anyone in the world that hasn't lost their prospect status or previously been drafted" league. I had picks #2 and #6 and went with Seth Beer and Ronald Acuna. Eloy went #1 followed by Beer, Senzel, Louis Robert, Moniak and Acuna. (I drafted Benintendi and Otani last year in the first round) I toyed with Senzel as well, but already had Bregman and was looking for long term options at 1B and OF.
