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.

2022 Top Phillies Prospects Countdown: #13 OF Ethan Wilson

Taken with the Phillies' second round draft pick (49th overall) last year, outfielder Ethan Wilson has landed among the top prospects in the organization. A co-freshman of the year in 2019, with South Alabama, Wilson has been on the radar of some big league teams for quite a while.  In his junior season last year, Wilson batted .313 with seven home runs and 30 RBI.  When his collegiate season was through, the lefty hitter quickly debuted in the minors.   In 30 games with Class A Clearwater last year, Wilson tallied a .215 average with three homers, 17 RBI and two steals. Listed at six-foot-one, 210-pounds, Wilson opened the 2022 campaign with Class A Advanced Jersey Shore.  The 22-year-old has been slow to start offensively, but confidence and poise are not a problem for this strong, promising individual. On the base paths, Wilson is quick and can contribute with his feet.  Defensively, the Alabama native will likely play left or right field moving forward.  Possessing an ability t

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 grown tal
