    Philly. Then they leak the offer and make Toronto an international laughingstock

    The hype surrounding Hoskins is the entire reason that Philly is making moves now.

    Anyone think the Phillies will be aggressive on Harper and Machado next off-season?

    Hoskins is the best player on their team already. Steamer has him as 25th best wRC+ next year. He had 2.2 WAR in 50 games.

    It's very bad. Hoskins alone is more valuable than Stroman + Pillar. Let alone adding Crawford + Kingery + Medina to that.

    I don't think Philly would or should do it, I'm just saying that worse deals have been executed fairly regularly.

    Are you fucked? Hoskins would have been a second or third piece like 200 PAs ago. He's no established star. Stroman+Pillar have a decent chance at doubling Hoskins' projected WAR. It's a bad trade for Philly but we've seen plenty actually happen that have been worse.

    Have to reluctantly agree with Boxy here. Jury is still out on Hoskins. Is he a star or just a regular..... TBD.

    I think you're significantly undervaluing Hoskins. He looks like one of the 25 or so most valuable assets in baseball right now.

    Speaking of the Phillies, Cesar Hernandez has produced 7.6 WAR over the last two seasons. Couldn't believe it. Back to back years with an .OBP above .370 as well.

    I was thinking earlier that if Philly actually did contact Toronto about Stro, they robably had a Stro for Hernandez trade in mind. They've been shopping him, and don't really need him with Kingery just about ready.
