BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2017 Due to publishing agreements, the 2017 player comments and team essays are only available in the Baseball Prospectus 2017 book (available in hardcopy, and soon e-book and Kindle).
2015 Hoby Milner's 2014 ERA was 20 pounds of suck crammed into a 10 pound sack.
2013 Hoby Milner is a polished college product from the University of Texas who impressed in 68 innings of pro ball after 72 with the Longhorns. His future is likely as a reliever, but the Phillies have him starting for now.

Plus. If any of you haven't seen my Vimeo page before, check it out: https://vimeo.com/user3214266/videos

Tons of prospect videos going back a few years (I upgraded to a much better camera prior to spring training 2012). Sometimes I like going back and looking at the older videos, like Michael Choice hitting a double off Hoby Milner in college: https://vimeo.com/11097416 (Jason Cole)
