Rhys Hoskins is going to participate in MLB’s Home Run Derby at the All Star Game next week in Washington, DC! This is great news, right?

Amazingly, some people are worried going to the Derby is going to mess up Hoskins’ swing. Don’t do it, they say, he’ll be broken for the second half of the season. Recent articles have done a good job debunking that myth, yet they persist.

On Episode 199 of Hittin’ Season, host John Stolnis is joined by this website’s assistant managing editor Justin Klugh to talk about these worries, Aaron Nola making the All-Star team, and answer a slew of mailbag questions related to the Phils.

These were the tweets used this week (I apologize if we weren’t able to get your tweet on, but I may use these tweets as ideas for written pieces and other podcasts moving forward).
