Moyer Update and More


Jamie Moyer had another surgical procedure on Friday to repair a blood collection detected in an MRI earlier this week. The blood collection was in his groin and lower abdomen area that was repaired by a surgeon earlier this autumn. Dr. Bill Meyers performed the latest surgery at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital.

Moyer may remain hospitalized until Monday. This surgery is not expected to impact his spring training schedule.

-------------------------------

For anyone who is not pleased with the Phillies' free agents signings that included Juan Castro, DeWayne Wise and Wilson Valdez this week...I encourage you to wait for better news. These guys won't be the only additions that the team makes. I view the collection of reserve level talent as a positive thing. Last offseason, the Phillies added several lowly regarded infielders (Miguel Cairo, Marcus Giles, Pablo Ozuna) to compete for jobs in spring training. Cairo made the roster, got demoted, and returned for the playoff drive, and was serviceable during his later stint as a Phillie. The others didn't make it through the season with the organization and did not cost the organization very much.

Minimally priced depth can be a good thing. If someone performs nicely and contributes, that's great. If a player performs poorly and stays in the minors or leaves, who cares? The Phillies aren't finished making acquisitions. Stay tuned....bigger and better names will arrive.

Happy birthday shout outs go out to my lady. "Mrs. Ballz" is turning Ricky Ledee's number. She loves the Phillies and me...Great taste!

RIP shout outs go out to my Great grand mom, who left us three years ago. She was 101 years old and I feel lucky that I got to know her for so long. She was not a sports fan, but loved Lawrence Welk and me. Even BETTER taste!

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
