The Scoop?

Phillies president Dave Montgomery visited the Reading Phillies clubhouse today in Trenton. Montgomery and Reading manager Steve Roadcap would not confirm the nature of the visit, but with the recent promotion of Yohan Flande to Reading from Clearwater, in addition to the ML Phillies having room due to the injury to Antonio Bastardo, that could make it possible for Reading to be promoting a pitcher. Pitcher Tyson Brummett was used today in relief, after starting 14 games. It is possible that the Brummett move makes room for Flande in the Reading rotation, but would the team president visit the double A affiliate's locker room, with a hush-hush vibe, and not have a reason?


I asked Reading manager Steve Roadcap, from the camera deck during the game, where Kyle Drabek, who did not dress today, might be headed. He looked around sheepishly, either acting as though he didn't hear me exactly or checking for who else might be listening, and would only tell me that Kyle was still there. Expect an announcement about the Major League Phillies' Thursday starter soon.

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 gro

Who is Your Favorite Willie 'Mays' Hayes?

PhoulBallz.com is wondering which individual who has portrayed Willie "Mays" Hayes is the favorite of the public. Hayes, of course, is the character made famous in the Major League motion picture series. In Major League , Willie "Mays" Hayes was portrayed by budding Hollywood actor Wesley Snipes, who would go on to action movie superstardom. Snipes has starred in major motion pictures like the Blade trilogy, Passenger 57 , Undisputed and many more.

Another budding actor, Epps had previously worked with director David S. Ward, on the film The Program , and landed the role of Hayes, who had become a Hollywood action star over the off-season that occured between the two films. Epps' career portraying athletes rol
