Who's Next?

With a steady mix of new pitchers rotating through the Phillies' club house recently, one can only wonder, "who is next?" Pitchers like Sergio Escalona, Tyler Walker, Kyle Kendrick, Antonio Bastardo and Andrew Carpenter have all made visits to the big league roster this season as call ups and fill-ins. One name that most phans are familiar with and likely expected to see in a Phillies uniform sooner than later is Carlos Carrasco. Carrasco, however, has been a considerable disappointment at the triple A level, going 1-7 with a 5.56 ERA, over 12 starts this season for Lehigh Valley. A name that could soon surpass Carrasco on the Phils' prospect list is lefty Joe Savery. Savery, a former top draft pick of the Phillies out of Rice University, is quickly mowing through double A opposition. He won his 8th game today for the Reading Phillies and lowered his ERA to 3.47. Savery has lost just one game in his 13 starts.


Phillies phans who don't live close enough to make the trip to Reading to see Philadelphia's budding talent might be interested to know that, as of know, the Reading rotation should have Joe Savery starting game 1 of a 4 game set in Trenton, against the Yankees affiliate Thunder, on Friday, June 26th. That projected pitching schedule is, of course, barring rain outs and other unforeseeable changes.

Your current Jimmy Rollins should be moved down in the order statistical update-

Rollins batting 1st in the batting order this season- 53 games, .200 avg. (49-for-245), 2 HR, 19 RBI, 31 runs scored, .236 OBP.
Rollins batting everywhere else in the batting order this season- 7 games, .409 avg. (9-for-22), 3 HR, 6 RBI, 6 runs scored, .458 OBP.

BallHype: hype it up!

I've always been a fan of Savery for some reason. He was also a pretty good hitter in college.

The reality of it all is that Savery could be a guy who never plays in the majors for the Phils...but will excel some place else, like Josh Outman is doing in Oakland.

Joe Savery could very well be building his return value up, and I am sure the front office is loving his output thus far.

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. Snipes remains an impact Hollywood actor, despite legal troubles related to income tax evasion. Snipes was replaced for the sequel, Major League II when his busy career, and possibly the film's budget, would not allow him to return, by Omar Epps. 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

This Guy Speaks For All of You

This individual, interviewed by FOX 29 on Friday as the Phillies arrived back at Citizens Bank Park, said it best. When asked how he felt regarding the Phillies, he told Steve Keeley that he was, "Stoked, baby!" The unidentified phanatic then proclaimed, "We are talking about the Fightins here, the Fightins! Said!" Check out the media player below, as the transcribed version certainly does not do this phireball of phandom justice. The Phillies forced game 6 of the National League Championship Series with a 4-2 victory over the Giants in San Francisco on Thursday night. Game 6 will feature Roy Oswalt vs. Jonathan Sanchez in a return pitching match up from game 2. First pitch is scheduled for 7:57 pm EST at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia.
