Hosmer's season was a long-form disaster that never ended. He hit .220 without a home run in his first 24 games for Low-A Burlington, but for many, it was reminiscent of how 2007 first-round pick Mike Moustakas struggled mightily at Burlington in 2008 before making adjustments and becoming the league's most dangerous hitter during the second half of the season. But those adjustments never happened for Hosmer; he showed a quick swing with plenty of leverage, but just never made hard contact in games, as he struggled to hit breaking balls and his set-up far from the plate left him lunging at pitches. Things got no better following a mysterious and undeserved promotion to High-A Wilmington, and he took time off at the end of the year for Lasik surgery to correct some vision problems. He did hit a walk-off home run in the Carolina League playoffs, but one at-bat is not enough to write off what happened in the 400+ PAs that came before.

I was looking around on our MiLB players tonight... interesting stat on Hosmer that bears watching albeit small sample... 10 K's in 17 ABs vs. LHP. I know it's development time, but that seems like a lot!

Calling all guys who studied law. Why is it that when a trial such as the Alverez case starts, they take multiple days off between testimonies? Wouldn't it be easier if they just got everyone there and went straight through until it was decided? Instead we have to wait another week to resume day 2 of testimony. I find that to be drawn out and a waste of time. Please give us a good explanation. Thanks. I just want Hosmer playing again!!

So I don’t know what will happen. But here’s the thing: My heart tells me that Hosmer will be great. Scouts like him. He’s got a great swing, a great body, great high school numbers, all that. He’s an advanced htter … those guys have the best shot of making it through the minors quickly. My heart says: Hosmer was a great pick. I tend to write with my heart, which is one reason why I’m so often wrong.
