Chris Coste is Officially the Enemy


The New York Metropolitans inked former Phillie Chris Coste on Monday. Coste will be guaranteed a spot on the organization's 40-man roster, though not the Major League 25-man roster. Reports state that Coste must pass a physical before the contract is final.

In four seasons with Philadelphia, Coste hit .282 with a .779 OPS in 256 games. Coste was placed on waivers and claimed by Houston last July.

Coste will join former Trenton Thunder standout Omir Santos as back stops for the Metropolitans.

Initially I was saddened by this news. I loved Coste's life story of sticking around and putting forth maximum effort in minor league baseball long enough to finally make the Major Leagues, as a rookie, at age 33, and as a result, I began to adopt Coste as one of my favorite Phillies. But, after considering where Coste is heading, I'm truly just sad for him. I am sorry, Costie. For now, you are no longer my dude.

John R. Finger's article for CSNPhilly.com might give some Phillies phans a smirk (and some Metropolitans fans a whole lot of displeasure). In the article, Finger quotes Chris Coste as saying, "I never wanted to leave Philadelphia, I will always consider myself a Phillie." Read that article here.

Coste has an evil plan of making many mistakes to help the Phils.

Rappers in Phillies Caps

Weekend greetings to you phine pholks out there. Today's post features pictures of rappers wearing Phillies caps. Why rappers in Phillies caps, you ask? Because... Any other questions? We will start things off properly by going with a highly recognizable hip hop star. 50 Cent stays constantly relavant by consistantly creating radio friendly material to help sell (G) units, while he "keeps it real" by still rapping about the thug life he lived before becoming the 2nd highest earning black entertainer in America. 50 is seen here in a recent interview rocking a throw-back Phillies cap. Next up we'll use a throw-back screen cap from what may be the very first major appearance by a rapper wearing Phillies gear. Chuck D, of legendary rap group Public Enemy, wore a Phillies cap in the music video for rap anthem Fight The Power in 1989. The song was the lead single from the soundtrack for Spike Lee's film Do The Right Thing . Next up we'll go with some home gro

Hayes, of course, is the character made famous in the Major League motion picture series.

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

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.
