It’s mailbag time!

On Episode 113 of The Felske Files, host John Stolnis is joined by Good Phight colleagues Justin Klugh and Liz Roscher to answer your Phillies questions.

Among the items discussed was when to bring up some of the team’s top prospects. When is it bad for a player to keep him in AAA when he’s proven he can excel at that level? Specifically, if Rhys Hoskins continues to hit the way he is (.334/.423/.663 with eight home runs), at what point should the Phillies elevate him to the Majors?

Also on the podcast this week:

  • A recap of the Phillies-Nationals series.
  • Phil's avoid the sweep thanks to a walk-off win on Sunday.
  • What part of the team is performing at an acceptable level right now?
