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.

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
