L.J. Hoes Ready for Next Shot with Astros

Patient is the perfect word to describe Houston Astros’ outfield prospect L.J. Hoes. The former third round pick of the Baltimore Orioles in 2008, has shown an uncanny ability to work an at-bat. Even as an 18-year old rookie fresh out of high school, Hoes managed to draw more walks than strikeouts. I don’t have to be the one to tell you that type of plate discipline is very uncommon...

Five tool players

I admit it. I brought you here under false pretenses. Here you thought you were going to read about players or prospects that had the proverbial five tools like running, throwing, power, high batting average and character. But that is not what this post is about. I'll leave such tool worship to the scouts and prospect writers who are good at what they do. Instead this post is about...

The best defensive plays for the week ending August 5th

The great defense got jacked up to another level this week. Some of these plays…man, I’m speechless. July 30th and 31st, Angels vs Orioles – Manny Machado’s got a cannon.

Adam Dunn Robbed Of Home Run After Ball Hits Top Of Wall Twice (Video)

Hoes leaped at the wall...

WATCH: Adam Dunn robbed of homer that hits top of wall twice
