What the Utley?


New Yorkers must not read the Phoul Ballz Phillies blog. Perhaps the 1260AM Yankees blogger, Charod, can pass the message along to Yankees fans that Chase Utley is ABOVE THE BOO. I get the whole rivalry thing. Jeter gets booed in Boston, and that whole deal…White Sox and Cubs are booed at one another’s parks also, but certain guys are above the boo.

Utley, not used to hearing jeers, due to his saint-like, Cal Junior-esque status, reacted in a manner that was out of character, during introductions at the MLB all star homerun derby, last night. He quickly forgot about the microphone on his jersey & the camera in his face and jokingly said an expletive directed right back at the NYC crowd. I am here to set the record straight. The national reports of Utley swearing on the live broadcast are incorrect. Sure, it sounded like the F-word. However, Chase Utley has a different style…you should recognize it. When Chase Utley uses that word, it starts with a “Ph”. Don’t get it twisted.

The boos should be louder than ever during tonight’s All star game at Yankee Stadium. Yankees fans, I don’t phreakin’ blame you, but while Utley has now clinched his permanent boo-berth in NYC for years to come, he has also clinched his cheer pass throughout the rest of baseball. Boston? They’re going to LOVE Chase Utley for cursing at the Yankees' crowd. Oakland and Anaheim? Mmm-hmm…they’ll like a guy who tells New Yorkers what’s up. Cleveland, Baltimore, Chicago…? The list goes on. Chase Utley is likely now the most popular National Leaguer in American League baseball cities, except one…and it’s all phuck’n good.

I recognize Chase Utley's style. I'm the one who gave it to him!

PhoulBallz Interview: RHP Ben Brown talks TJ recovery, O'Hoppe, cancelled season

Image- MiLB.com Out of action since last May when it was determined he required Tommy John surgery, righty pitching prospect Ben Brown is using the downtime of the pandemic hiatus to continue his physical recovery.  A 33rd round draft selection of the Phillies back in 2017, Brown made his professional debut that same year, posting a 2.57 ERA and a 1.43 WHIP in 10 appearances in the rookie level Gulf Coast League.  The following season, Brown began to make a name for himself in the GCL, striking out 16 batters in one July appearance.  He would post a 3.12 ERA and a 1.18 WHIP in 10 games (eight starts) before earning a promotion and finishing the season with a pair of outings with Class A short-season Williamsport. Brown, a Long Island, NY native, opened last year with Class A Lakewood.  In four appearances with the BlueClaws, he struck out 20, walked four and allowed no runs in 13 2/3 innings and looked well on his way to making an impact on betting odds and available promo codes

2019 Phillies Prospects Countdown: #7 LHP JoJo Romero

JoJo Romero, image- Jay Floyd With a growing crop of very talented pitching prospects in the Phillies organization, left-hander JoJo Romero is certainly among the standouts. The five-foot-11 200-pounder was the Phils’ 4th round draft selection in 2016. That year he helped Yavapai College, the same school that the Phillies drafted Kenny Giles from in 2011, clinch the JuCo World Series, leading the way with an 11-5 record, a 3.64 ERA and a 10.2 K/9 mark. He also tossed a complete game gem to earn the win in their title game. After signing with the Phillies, Romero made his professional debut as a member of the short-season Class A Williamsport Crosscutters. There, he notched a 2-2 record with a 2.56 ERA while striking out 31 and walking 11 in 45 2/3 innings. In 2017, he got off to a terrific start with the Class A Lakewood BlueClaws. In 13 starts, Romero tallied a 5-1 record with a 2.11 ERA and a 9.3 K/9 mark and was honored as a South Atlantic League mid-season All-Star. R

Rappers in Phillies Caps

Weekend greetings to you phine pholks out there. Today's post features pictures of rappers wearing Phillies caps. Why rappers in Phillies caps, you ask? Because... Any other questions? We will start things off properly by going with a highly recognizable hip hop star. 50 Cent stays constantly relavant by consistantly creating radio friendly material to help sell (G) units, while he "keeps it real" by still rapping about the thug life he lived before becoming the 2nd highest earning black entertainer in America. 50 is seen here in a recent interview rocking a throw-back Phillies cap. Next up we'll use a throw-back screen cap from what may be the very first major appearance by a rapper wearing Phillies gear. Chuck D, of legendary rap group Public Enemy, wore a Phillies cap in the music video for rap anthem Fight The Power in 1989. The song was the lead single from the soundtrack for Spike Lee's film Do The Right Thing . Next up we'll go with some home grown tal
