    hope there is a bigger piece coming. Hoes is a 4th outfielder

    I was thinking Hoes was an Astros type of player in that he is a strong on base guy. Little in the power department though.

    Wish it was Arizona or Pittsburgh but I'll wait for the second piece before I judge.

    Hoes? An outfielder with limited power who can't steal bases? What's the potential on that guy?

    His real name is Jerome O'Bryan Hoes, according to Wikipedia.
