Anthony Gose Speaks With PhoulBallz.com Once Again

Anthony Gose, the minor league baseball steals leader, always wears his ball cap just a bit askew. A guest rehabber took issue with it, during his visit to Lakewood. I asked Anthony about that and some other things following the BlueClaws' double header Monday night. Here's how that went down.


Anthony, you were praised by Baseball America last week, with a survey they conducted of South Atlantic League managers, when they named you as best base runner, fastest base runner, best defensive outfielder and most exciting player. How do you feel about those accolades?

It feels great, actually. To have all those accolades coming from the managers, I mean, of all the players in the league, for them to recognize me as one of the top players, and to give me that high of recognition, it feels great.


Is there anyone on the BlueClaws team that you would describe as underrated?

Troy Hanzawa. Most underrated player in the league. The best shortstop in the league.


I wanted to find out what happened with the critique you got from Brett Myers during warm ups. He took issue with your cap.

Oh, he told me, fix my hat. I kind of yelled back, "What did you say?" He said, "Don't loud talk me!" I mean, he was just trying to help me out. Teach me a lesson. He's much older, been in the game a lot longer, so he knows more than I do. I'm just a young kid, who's out there doing my own thing.


But the cap stayed crooked...

Yeah, the cap stayed crooked. That's just what I do. I'm hard headed.


So, he's trying to teach you something, and you accept it, but don't-

I mean, I understand what he's saying, but I mean I've worn my hat crooked 100-and some games thus far. So that's what I'm'a keep doing, the rest of the year.


Do you think that's something you might want to work on, as far as, accepting criticism from veterans as you move up?

I'm always willing to accept the criticism. I mean, I understand what he was doing and what he did was right. I probably should've fixed my hat, but at this point of the year, I'm'a keep wearing it how I wear it. It works for ME.

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

Former Phils prospect Cozens stops looters in AZ

Last week, as he rang in his 26th birthday, Dylan Cozens wasn't celebrating.  Instead, he took to the streets in the midst of rioting to protect local businesses in his native Scottsdale, AZ. After 1:00 AM, Cozens, a former Phillies outfield prospect and current Rays minor leaguer, caught a glimpse of some rowdy happening on Facebook Live.  Posts showed violence and thievery and the former second round draft selection wasn't going to let it continue.  "When I saw what they were doing and the reason behind it, I decided to try and stop it because it wasn't right. It had nothing to do with Black Lives Matter.  It was a hate crime to go and try to destroy businesses and loot and hurt peopl
