He's a prick, but they did need him.

Has anyone ever told you you're an asshole?

If I said something like that, Bank, I'd be accused of the ol' reverse mojo thing.

Probably.

I think the Sox can beat anyone, and might, but I like the Astro's rotation and I got some concerns about the Sox BP against good line-ups.

Sox are a good bet in the 8-5 games, less so in the 4-3 games.

It was one year ago today that Rhys Hoskins left triple-A Lehigh Valley and joined the Phillies for a four-game series at Citizens Bank Park against the New York Mets. He went 1 for 13 in that first series. Things, of course, improved in a hurry as he hit 18 home runs in his next 30 games to become the fastest player to 18 home runs in major-league history.

In his first calendar year of Major League Baseball, Hoskins has hit .258 with 35 doubles, 40 home runs, 120 RBIs, and a .918 OPS. His big-league career did not start until he was 24, but itís still fun to compare his first calendar year to some of the other active stars in the game.

Hereís a look at how Hoskins compares to five of the gameís premier sluggers:

Player                    G      AB      R      H     2B    HR  RBI    BB    K    BA   OBP  SLG   OPS

Rhys Hoskins       155    551    101  142    35     40    120    103  153  .257  .379   .539    .918

Aaron Judge         138    478      97   129   16     39      88      94  194  .270  .394   .523    .967

Bryce Harper        162    616    115   175   31     31      77      68   133 .284  .356   .518    .874

Giancarlo Stanton 156    552     78   142   34      35      92      58   181 .257  .332   .520    .852

Mookie Betts         126    480      71   133   29     13      52      45     67  .277  .341   .440   .781

Nolan Arenado      159     590     63   161  35      14      66      26     85  .273  .303   .417   .720

Note: Mike Trout was not included because he started the 2012 season in the minors after making his major-league debut in July 2011, and that tainted his sample size.

The Phillies got Justin Bour.  I've always liked that guy.  Yankees certainly looked at him at one point during Bird's injury issues.

Tough one today for Nats.  Damn, those Cubs are tough in the close ones.

Have to be a bit puzzled by the addition (by Rizzo) and use today (by Martinez) of Greg Holland.
