Rhys Hoskins is an unquestioned Wall of Famer

Late Tuesday night, while most of us were sleeping soundly in our beds, a Phillies legend officially became a part of another organization.

Rhys Hoskins is now a Milwaukee Brewer.

Reunited with his old general manager Matt Klentak, now an assistant with the Brew Crew, Hoskins signed a two-year, $34 million deal that includes an opt-out after this season. It’s a good landing spot for the former Phils slugger who will likely bat cleanup in between Christian Yelich and Willy Adames in a Brewers lineup badly in need of power.

His time in Philadelphia ended too abruptly, that ACL tear last spring a cruel twist of fate that deprived the city and player of a proper send off and, perhaps, a better shot at the World Series.
