IMO this team also has many players that need career saving years for this team to thrive. Hos, Moose, Frenchy, Santana, Chen, Hoch, Cain, and Crow
The dude is far too talented to post another year like last season's anomaly. He began the season crushing the ball but hitting them right at the defense. He then began pressing to overcome a terrible, offensive statistical start and never really recovered. Don't expect a repeat. To his credit, he didn't allow his lack of offense to effect his defense.Hoz will be back with his old hitting coaches. IMO, Seitzer did him no favors with his inside - out approach. Just drop the bathead and let the big dog fly. Hosmer will be fine.
