2/8/10 Notebook

Just touching on some recent noteworthy tidbits...

A quiet move that the Phillies' front office made in November is just coming to light. Pat Gillick re-signed with the organization to stay on as senior advisor to team president Dave Montgomery through 2011. To read more about that, click this link.

This coming season's Rodrigo Lopez could very well be Oscar Villarreal. The 28-year-old righty is coming off Tommy John surgery and was signed to a minor league contract by the Phillies last week. If you recall, last season Lopez was signed to add depth to the minors. Lopez was used at the Major League level to fill voids left by injured pitchers during the 2009 season. Additional details on the Villarreal deal can be found here.

Ryan Howard was in Miami for the Super Bowl over the weekend with a date. TheFightins has all your info and a picture of Howard's lady. Check that out by clicking here.

Seats for the May 18th Phillies' Roy Halladay bobblehead give away are sold out. The Phillies provided season ticket holders the chance to preorder single game tickets on Friday and the highly anticipated give away was sold out in just a few hours. The Phillies released standing room only tickets today, but those should go just as quickly.

Nationals single game tickets go on sale March 2nd at 10:00am, for those of you looking to purchase opening day tickets and invade Washington.

8 days to go! Balls, Sticks & Stuff has the updated countdown to when pitchers and catcher report to spring training...along with the live weather feed from Clearwater, Florida. Check this link for that info.

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
