Team Notes, 8/13/09

There's a whole lot going on in Phillies land today!

Pedro Martinez got his first win as a Phillie last night, over the Cubs. Pedro looked solid through his first 4 innings, but gave up 2 earned runs in the 5th inning. Pedro's complete line, after 99 pitches- 5 innings, 7 hits, 3 runs all earned, 1 walk, 5 k's.

TheFightins has a review of the Victorino/Cubs fan/beer incident.
NQTC offers some thoughts on Wrigley bleacher fans, last night's mishap and if the Cubs had anything to do with it.
TricoSuave has a look at Shane's beer shower fun as well.
The double A Reading Phillies' locker room reaction to the beer tossed into Shane's face: "Nice timing." Cubs manager Lou Piniella was disappointed that it happened, stating, "It’s not good sportsmanship. … We apologize to Victorino and the Phillies for that."

Brett Myers threw two more simulated innings yesterday in Clearwater, FL. Myers is hoping to pitch a rehab assignment soon.

Phillies outfield prospect Michael Taylor went 5-for-5 and hit for the cycle last night in the Lehigh Valley IronPigs' victory. Taylor's homer came in the 9th inning to tie the game and set the stage for an extra inning victory for the IronPigs.

As bad as Eric Bruntlett has been this season (.398 OPS), Matt Stairs has played just as poorly, as of late. Stairs in July & August- 1-for-24 (.047 avg), 1 HR, 1 RBI, 3 runs. Bruntlett in July & August- 2-for-19 (.105 avg), 0 HR, 1 RBI, 3 runs. Since the All star break, the Phillies bench has faltered. Matt Stairs and Eric Bruntlett are a combined 1-for-31 (.032 avg) with 0 HR, 0 RBI and 2 runs scored, during that 4 week stretch.

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

Dylan Cozens, image- Jay Floyd Please consider supporting my work and subscribe to  my Patreon page .  Your patronage will get you exclusive interviews and other prospect related material as well as early access to all of my other content such as this post.  Thank you. 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
