Opening Day Countdown: 27

Let’s see if I can come up with a post every day of the rest of the offseason. Today, there are 27 days left until Opening Day on April 6.


is the number of doubles Eric Hosmer hit in the Majors in 2011. It’s also the approximate number of times the MLB Network has had him as an on-air guest this offseason. They are quite shameless in their collective mancrush on the Hos. Here is the most recent appearance, an interview with Dan Plesac as part of ’30 Clubs in 30 Days.’

Those 27 doubles were 5th-most on the Royals, and also the 5th-most among all Major League rookies. Three of the four rookies ahead of Hosmer in doubles had significantly more plate appearances to collect just a couple more doubles than he did. Only the Mets’ Justin Turner doubled more than Hosmer in less – a LOT – less playing time than Hos.
