Voting is open 8am till 8pm.

If you're unfamiliar with PhoulBallz.com and perhaps aren't sure who to vote for in the 3 vs. 6 match up in the Daulerio Region, please accept this list of 10 reasons why you should vote for PhoulBallz.com...


#1- Exclusive interviews. Philled In isn't the only one with press access. With over 50 interviews over the past year, PhoulBallz.com has brought readers an inside look at all the best known prospects such as Trevor May, Domonic Brown, Anthony Gose, BJ Rosenberg, Michael Taylor, Mike Stutes, Kyle Drabek and many more. In addition, readers have gotten Q&A's from Major League stars such as Pedro Martinez, JC Romero, Greg Dobbs, Clay Condrey and others too. To put it simply- PhoulBallz is like thong underwear....we're in there.

#2- This image of Jayson Werth as The Human Torch, brought to you by PhoulBallz.com. It's hot!

#3- Because former Phils pharm hand Jason Knapp and other Phillies minor leaguers wear PhoulBallz.com shirts.



















#4- The Sunday School History Lessons that PhoulBallz.com brings readers each week. The past is one of the most important things about the sport of baseball. The heritage, the nostalgia, the frame work....they're all aspects of baseball that make it so appealing and fascinating. Phans today should know about all the players, coaches and team personnel that have impacted the Phillies franchise over the years. Sunday School articles have featured lessons on Eppa Rixey, Tony Taylor, Jack Sanford, Johnny Callison and plenty more under-acknowledged stars of the past. There just aren't many blogs that place importance on history the way this site does.

#5- PhoulBallz.com isn't exactly a prime news source, but the site has managed to deliver some breaking news....like the Phillies' misprint on Harry Kalas' Wall of Fame plaque and the brief, but comical, Brett Myers/Anthony Gose feud last season.

#6- Because the other guy is new to the Phillies' beat and, like, most people don't really know him, or some junk. I mean, vote for your friendly neighborhood PhoulBallz, who has been here, steadily, for a good long while. The other guy is temporary.

#7- Because P. Puffy Diddy Daddy wants you to....



#8- Because PhoulBallz.com kept its name the same, despite many ladies nicknaming the site "Dirty Dishes" due to their deep desire to always do us right after dessert.

#9- Because PhoulBallz.com brought you Jose Contreras' family tree.



#10-Because if PhoulBallz.com advances to the Sweet 16 of The Phield, 16 readers will win prizes from the site. No diggity, fo' shiggity.

**UPDATE** PhoulBallz.com was victorious in the 2nd round and has advanced into the SWEET 16 of The Phield tournament. Thanks so much for your support. The next round is Friday.

2019 Phillies Prospects Countdown: #7 LHP JoJo Romero

JoJo Romero, image- Jay Floyd With a growing crop of very talented pitching prospects in the Phillies organization, left-hander JoJo Romero is certainly among the standouts. The five-foot-11 200-pounder was the Phils’ 4th round draft selection in 2016. That year he helped Yavapai College, the same school that the Phillies drafted Kenny Giles from in 2011, clinch the JuCo World Series, leading the way with an 11-5 record, a 3.64 ERA and a 10.2 K/9 mark. He also tossed a complete game gem to earn the win in their title game. After signing with the Phillies, Romero made his professional debut as a member of the short-season Class A Williamsport Crosscutters. There, he notched a 2-2 record with a 2.56 ERA while striking out 31 and walking 11 in 45 2/3 innings. In 2017, he got off to a terrific start with the Class A Lakewood BlueClaws. In 13 starts, Romero tallied a 5-1 record with a 2.11 ERA and a 9.3 K/9 mark and was honored as a South Atlantic League mid-season All-Star. R

McGwire Stays Phony, Despite Admitting Drug Use

Mark McGwire made an effort to publicly come clean today, admitting to the world that he took performance enhancing drugs during his playing career. Steroids and human growth hormones were among the drugs that McGwire admitted to using. MLB Network featured a one on one interview with Bob Costas and McGwire on Monday evening. The broadcast was virtually garbage, thanks to McGwire. Ahead is a list of quotes from McGwire's interview. McGwire repeatedly stated his point of view that there were no dishonorable intentions involved when taking steroids, and that he was merely using them as a means to recover from varying ailments. When asked if he felt like he cheated... "As I look back now...I can see how people would say that. As far as the talent goes and the hand-eye coordination, the ability, the genetics I was given...I don't see it." "I did not take this for any strength purposes." Denial. Read on for similar B.S. He whined about the abuse he'

Diekman a Late Addition to Mesa AFL Roster

On Wednesday, Phillies lefty pitching prospect Jacob Diekman made his Arizona Fall League debut. Diekman, who was drafted in the 30th round of the 2007 amateur draft, was assigned to Mesa late, in order to increase his 2010 innings total, according to Mesa hitting coach Mark Parent, who managed Diekman in Lakewood this past season. Diekman, 23, posted a 2-0 record with 1.90 ERA in 21 games with Class A Lakewood before being promoted to High-A Clearwater on June 24th. In 24 games with the Threshers, Diekman went 0-2 with a 3.66 ERA. Combined, Diekman tossed 55 2/3 innings and held opponents to a .187 batting average against at two levels in 2010. However, after not pitching in an official game since he threw a shutout inning to wrap up the Clearwater season on September 5th, Diekman was unable to record an out as all seven batters he faced reached base, six with hits, one on an error. Diekman was charged with 5 earned runs in the outing. Diekman had spent time at instructional ball f
