Ohfer-Roll Still On Top

Are you ready for your regularly scheduled Jimmy Rollins/lead off hitter reflections? Jelly-Roll's "ohfers" are killing the team. Rollins was hitless in his 6th straight game, after going 0-for-5 on Tuesday in Atlanta. Here is a look at game results when Rollins plays and hits successfully in a game vs. when Rollins plays and goes 0-for-...

Phillies record when Rollins has at least one hit...28-13 (.682 winning pct)
Phillies record when Rollins does not have a hit...7-19 (.269 winning pct)


Rollins is batting .115 (7-for-61) in his last 14 games. The team is 4-10 in those games.

The Pirates traded Eric Hinske to the Yankees on Tuesday for two minor leaguers. Hinske is best known to Philadelphia phans as the batter who struck out for the final out of the 2008 World Series. Those of you who were looking forward to seeing Hinske and the Pirates visit Citizens Bank Park over the weekend of July 10-12 and offering him a great welcome, may now have to wait until the 2009 World Series for Hinske to return.

Afternoon update- Sirius XM Radio today announced that they will be broadcasting the All Star Futures game, featuring Phillies properties Yohan Flande and Kyle Drabek. Announcers scheduled for the game are Jim Kaat and former Phillies play-by-play man Scott Graham. I miss Graham's catch phrase, "Put this one in the win column for the Fightin' Phils!" The game will be played Sunday, July 12th at 2pm eastern time.

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

Kendrick & LaGrossa- Second Phils/Survivor Marriage

On Saturday, Phillies pitcher Kyle Kendrick married 3-time Survivor contestant and former Flyers employee Stephenie LaGrossa. The couple exchanged vows in front of 105 guests at the Silverado Resort in Napa, California. Their special day featured many personalized aspects, including cocktail hour snacks modeled in the fashion of mini Philly cheesesteaks, as well as the couple's two dogs, Bebe and Champ, serving as flower girl and ring bearer during the ceremony. The pets wore a white dress and a tuxedo, respectively. Kendrick is now the second Phillies pitcher to marry a former contestant of the CBS reality competition program, as lefty Cole Hamels wedded Heidi Strobel, who appeared on the sixth season of Survivor, in 2007. _________________________________________________________________ Be sure to follow PhoulBallz.com on Twitter, for updates, stats and info, by clicking HERE .
