  1. Jim- Sent you an email about a Kingery/Hernandez write up. Let me know if I had the right email.

  2. Crawford finally staring to string together some hits, hopefully this is where he turns it around.

        1. I believe his first multi hit game of AAA.

          I’m gonna say he continues his streak and gets another hit tonight.

          1. gonna go out on limb and say Crawford will get another hit in the next game he plays in

    1. sf,

      When his pop foul was dropped, I immediately thought this is where JP breaks his slump and, darn if he didn’t then get this first hit of the night. He also hit the ball hard on a couple of outs.

      Maybe this is it for JP.

  3. Hoskins has hit in 10 in a row and is hitting .389 with a .436 OBP over those 10 games.

    Cozens had 3 hits in the 1st game and 5 K’s in the 2nd game. Feast or famine.

    Thompson, who started very slowly, has had 3 good outings in a row. He’s given up 2 ERs in his last 18 1/3 innings. That’s an ERA under 1. He’s also had 18 Ks in those 3 outings with 5 BBs.

    If you’re looking for weather info, just look in the box scores. In CT yesterday, we hit 85 degrees and sunny but in Toledo it was 46 degrees and overcast. Also don’t look for any box scores from the Colorado area. Snow and cold. I’m working on setting up my garden and getting my lawn tractor ready and some areas of the country are pulling out the snow blowers.

    Jose Pujols has very quietly hit in in 5 of his last 6 games. It’s still only a .209 clip but it’s better than its been. He also has 3 BBs in his last 3 games while only striking out 4 times. That’s an improvement but you don’t have to go very far before that to see the huge number of Ks.

    1. That’s a platinum sombrero for Cozens … Still early, but he’s pushing a 45 percent K rate right now. His splits vs. LHP are, um, well …

      29 AB, .069/.156/.276, 2 HR, 59% K Rate

      The distance between Cozens and Hoskins at AAA compared to AA has widened into a chasm.

      1. It was evident that there was some gap between Hoskins and Cozens even last year. The Road splits demonstrated that. Hoskins bested Cozens in every one of: BA, OBP, SLG, HR, Doubles, BB/K rate. An .853 OPS, 51 RBI on the Road was evidence Hoskins was not just a FirstEnergy Stadium stud, but truly the real deal. I hope Cozens can be one day but I’m not sure I see it past his K%.

        Btw, Hoskins splits this year H/A are interesting. His Home are excellent (.953 OPS), and his Road are even better (1.219 OPS, 8/7 BB/K)!! (SSS) My point is simply that while many young players are much more comfortable at home, Rhys continues to show he is comfortable everywhere, and that bodes well for his chances to succeed when he is eventually called up.

        1. Johnk…what is another amazing point on Hoskins…except for a brief time in Williamsport in 2014 for about 15/20 games in July, where he could have been tired from playing from January in college, and this past winter in the DR league for about 5 hitless games …..he doesn’t go into any major prolonged slumps thru out his minor league career considering it is over 1500 PAs.

        2. I’m not surprised that Cozens is struggling or that Hoskins is doing well. I am, however, a little surprised (and psyched!) that Hoskins is dominating AAA pitching – as much as I’ve loved him as a prospect since seeing him in ST 2015, I didn’t quite see it coming.

    2. bellman,

      And Hoskins came close to a couple of home runs Saturday. Of course, not being horseshoes…

  4. Reasons to be excited about the rest of the big league season: Hoskins, Alfaro, Quinn, Thompson, Eflin, Pivetta, Knapp, Altherr (if Mackanin will play him), and yes – JPC is showing signs of life.

    1. In addition, in the off-season, one would think the Phil’s are going to go get the remaing big name, big production pieces they need in FA.

  5. Looking forward to this lineup later in the season –

    Quinn lf
    Hernandez 2b
    Herrera cf
    Franco 3b
    Hoskins 1b
    Alfaro c
    Crawford ss
    Altherr rf

    Eickhoff, Eflin, Velasquez, Pivetta, and Thompson in the rotation. In all honesty, I’m not getting good vibes on Nola’s durability.

    1. People keep assuming Andy Knapp away. Knapp may be as quietly good as Alfaro is loudly good.

      1. I think Knapp will do well in whatever role he plays. Don’t be surprised if he’s part of a trade package later. He certainly has more value than Rupp at this point.

      2. I agree Ca….watched him in the Dodger game last night and he looked good and even cracked his first HR. But then, I have seen him in spring training and the one thing that is very clear is that he has the mechanics to be a good hitter.

    2. Where s the outfield power coming from. The Rf is power position and RBI not 8 Hole. No way Jp an 7 hole hitter. More like Ceaser , jp , Obbie , Franco, DJ Martinez ,tojo , Sanderson, Alfaro.

    1. No, these are paper assignments merely to manage the starting rotations. The lower level teams have been at this all season. He’ll return upon his turn.

    2. This occurs often with pitchers, and even at times position players that are not in EST, when there is surplus available….well at least until June 19th or so, when the NY-Penn league officially starts.
