Kody Hinze needs to be promoted...period!  Anyway you slice his statistics, any kind of splits, his OPS is still over 1.000!  That is ridiculous.  I know, I know, he's hitting in Lancaster, but in fact, he's hitting better on the road.  The California League actually has a few parks that are pitcher friendly, so he's mashing everywhere.  Sure, at home, the park is helping his numbers probably, but the guy has a history of hitting for power.  Jimmy Van Ostrand is hitting quite well in AA, but he's a non prospect and shouldn't be blocking Hinze.  Hinze is quite old and probably doesn't have a future in Houston with Wallace holding down the fort, but lets build up his trade value or something.
