Starting 9 Episode 6 Featuring Rhys Hoskins
On Episode 6 of Starting 9, we’ve got Phillies rising star Rhys Hoskins. He came in Barstool HQ yesterday, so we got to sit down and talk about whether or not he’s a Stoolie, his favorite baseball player growing up, what baseball video games he played growing up, what his “Welcome to The Show” moment was, if he has a chip on his shoulder from being drafted in the fifth round, whether or not he believes he was a first-round talent at the time, how playing college baseball helped him, his thoughts on metal bats in college, how adding a leg kick to his swing was crucial to hitting for power, what was going through his head after homering in five straight games, honoring his late mother on Player’s Weekend, and more.
Other topics include the red hot Arizona Diamondbacks and Cleveland Indians, the ice cold LA Dodgers, the Red Sox-Yankees cheating scandal, an update on the American League Cy Young race, a debate over Andrew Benintendi versus Clint Frazier, what player we’d most like to step into the batter’s box against, and whether or not the MLB should have an award that’s separate from the MVP award to acknowledge the most outstanding season without postseason factoring at all. All that, and a lot more.
