4: A 30 Home Run Season From Rhys Hoskins
That Hoskins guy, he’s kind of good. Rhys Lightning bolted into the record books with his surplus of bombs at a record speed. But was the bolt a bust? 2018 will prove Hoskins is the real deal. Hopefully he can do something no Phillies player has done since Ryan Howard in 2011. Hit 30 home runs. While his 2017 pace would have led to 58 bombs in a full 162 game season it is unlikely he will keep up that pace, but hey we can pray and dream right? Hoskins looked like the cornerstone the franchise could build upon. Hopefully 2018 will build upon that claim instead of diminishing it.
