The Phillies are Getting Jerzified!

That Jersey Shore program sure was a big hit for MTV this winter. There was no avoiding this show. It was cheesy television at its finest. Even folks who managed to dodge what seemed to be 24/7 repeats of Jersey Shore for 8 or 9 weeks, were subjected to astounding references to the show via other media outlets. Everything from sports talk radio to your friends' social networking site updates were sure to contain blurbs, debates or content about the show.

With that saturation in mind, this week, I was wondering what some Phillies might look like, if they got Jersey-fied. I did some calculations...have a look-

Here is an image of how Carlos Ruiz would appear if he got a blow out and a sweet orange tan. Seems like he'd fit right in with the cast of the show. How do you say, "The Situation" en Espanol?


Oh, and next we have Ruiz's battery mate, Roy Halladay. Here's Roy with a spray tan, tats and his own blow out hair-do. Would night clubs allow a guy carrying a Cy Young Award in?


And here's a bonus one. Phils manager Charlie Manuel is seen here rockin' a faux hawk, an orange glow and a whole lot of muscles on the beach. The tan and the hair are worked up...but the physique is all real. Charlie dropped a bunch of weight this offseason, you know?

This Guy Speaks For All of You

This individual, interviewed by FOX 29 on Friday as the Phillies arrived back at Citizens Bank Park, said it best. When asked how he felt regarding the Phillies, he told Steve Keeley that he was, "Stoked, baby!" The unidentified phanatic then proclaimed, "We are talking about the Fightins here, the Fightins!

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

Wassup with dat? Vito Friscia edition

Friscia, image- Jay Floyd What's up with that Vito Friscia guy?  Well, he's a 24-year-old righty batting catcher that was drafted by the Phillies out of Hofstra University in 2019 with the team's final selection, 1200th overall, in the 40th round. But what's his deal?  Friscia opened the season with Class A Advanced Jersey Shore, where, in 16 games, he notched a .264 batting average with a pair of home runs, five doubles and seven RBI.  Last week, when Triple-A Lehigh Valley needed a reserve backstop, Friscia was promoted to fill their void.  When Rafael Marchan returned from a short stint in the big leagues, Friscia was assigned to the Double-A Reading roster.   Is he just a backup catcher?  For now, it seems that's his role.  But check out this quote from BlueClaws skipper Chris Adamson from earlier this month when I asked him about which player stood out to him as a guy that deserved recognition, but may not be getting it. "Vito Friscia is a guy that, earl
