    Yeah I agree it isnt a huge concern and I've heard he's improved defensively anyway.

    I agree with all this and when you add in the other nice hitter parks in the division Rogers Centre, Camdong yards and NYY it should help Hos nicely.

    Yes!! Listened to Mike a lot over the years. Heard the last show today. LOL great line from Bobby V on Cash

    I got so confused I was like wait what Cabrera???! Hehh ?? than I remembered Andujar's name is Miguel LOL

    I think its Andujar - at 3rd as of now. He's got a great bat the only knock on him as been his glove but he has the raw tools - athleticism and arm to succeed. At 2B I think they'll give Torres every chance to win the job in Spring.

    Its an astute comparison and there are certainly a bunch of similarities here. Hoskins could very well end up being a low BABIP guy along the lines of Bats especially considering his strong pull%. But I did think it was interesting that Hoskins had a much higher BABIP in AAA ~.280. Although its tricky putting a ton of credence into Milb babip. Just thought it might be worth mentioning.

    I never said comparing him To Bats was a bad thing or a bad comparsion (just as long as it isnt this past years version of Bautista lol) - Its an interesting comparison at the very least. Bats was a very good hitter in his day. To be perfectly honest with you distinguishing between hit tool and contact rate Its a bit over my head- I suppose they mean different things to different people but really what I was getting at is the guy puts the bat on the ball at an exceptional rate while also hitting for power all while showing a very good knowledge of the K zone. I think the ingredients are here for a guy who should be expected to hit better than .250. I'm not saying hes a .300 hitter or anything like that but rather I'd lean closer to .270 as a reasonable expectation.

    I don't even think Bats was drafted in the first mock yet. I guess he'd be worth a late round flier if you got points for bat flips. How the mighty have fallen

    The woba and iso numbers are fantastic both in AAA and MLB last year so the power is very legit. And I think there is reason for optimism regarding Hoskin's BA. His AAA contact numbers last year were excellent. 13.5 BB% walk rate along with a tidy 15.8%k rate. He showed a very solid BB rate in the bigs too so I think he has pretty good knowledge of the strikezone. Could he hit .250? Sure he could but I think his hit tool along with his solid plate discipline lead me to believe he will be closer to that .270 range across a full season of ABs. I know there's concern over drafting him at a lofty adp with such a limited amount of big league at bats and I totally get it- if you are more comfortable drafting a safer or more proven commodity there thats completely fair. However, Hoskins did only swing and miss 7.1% of the time while hitting with an iso of .359 in MLB last year. Thats an extremely intriguing skill set and it could very well be worth the risk. https://www.fangraphs.com/fantasy/rhys-hoskins-and-the-50-game-test/ Pretty interesting article on FG about it.

    Hopefully you don't mean last year's Bautista? If so yikes.

    Yeah I agree Its gotta be Hick's job right now. Ellsbury was a water cooler during the ALCS.

    Hey that works too! MM is going to cost a ton. Do they have enough to get it done? Didn't realize Moose was a Boras guy so he won't be cheap either. He's not MM but still a very good upgrade over Valbuena. I think Machado will be on the move soon and the O's would be smart to get something for him while they can.

    Kinsler to Angels. This team is looking really nice now. Lock up that WildCard.
