Prospect Colvin Arrested & Wassup Around the Bloggerhood

Phillies pitching prospect Brody Colvin was arrested late Saturday night on misdemeanor charges. The 19-year-old 2009 draft pick was charged with disturbing the peace, simple battery and resisting an officer when he was arrested late Saturday night in a bar district in his hometown of Lafayette, La.

Colvin was released and is scheduled to return for a court appearance on April 1st. The complete arrest report is not expected to be available for 5-10 business days.

Colvin, a righty pitcher, was a 7th round pick in the 2009 amateur draft and pitched in one game for the Gulf Coast League Phillies last year before being sent to the Florida Instructional League. Colvin was regarded as an early round talent prior to the draft, but dropped to round 7 because he was expected to attend college and not turn pro. The Phillies were able to sign Colvin shortly before the August deadline last year.

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

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
