PhoulBallz in "The Phield" Tournament

Something huge happened around the Phillies blogosphere on Tuesday evening. Timothy Malcolm, a former regular at PhilliesNation, debuted a 65-blog tournament bracket pitting all the best, worst and everything in between Phillies blogs against each other to determine the King of Philly. The tournament and the site that hosts it are known as The Phield. Check out their site by clicking here.

My very own blog was ranked as a 6 seed, which I may disagree with, but I will refrain from going all Joe Budden on Tim and anyone else who put their efforts into the bracket and site. I respect them, the tournament and the other bloggers and writers involved.

In the first round of the tournament, PhoulBallz.com is pitted up against the 11 seed, a blog called Team to Beat, which should not be confused with a blog, that I must admit was more familiar to me, called We're the Team to Beat, which is competing in another bracket.

Of course, I am writing this to rally all PhoulBallz readers to vote for this site and help it to advance into the next round. Support your friendly neighborhood PhoulBallz. You can view a preview of PhoulBallz's first round match up by clicking HERE. Voting will be done exclusviely on The Phield web site. Thursday's 1st round voting can be done at this link.

Also included in the tournament are big time pages from the likes of The700Level and TheFightins, as well as the blogs of the beat writers like David Murphy's High Cheese and Todd Zolecki's Zo Zone. It's going to be fun all around, but I am crossing my fingers for no first round upsets in my area.

Please vote for all your favorite blogs. As always, I appreciate the support of all my readers. The full bracket can be found here.

Additionally, I would like to go on record with an endorsement and encourage PhoulBallz readers to also vote for Macho Row. Kevin, who recently guest posted here on PhoulBallz, runs a solid site and deserves your votes (against anyone except me). Best wishes and good luck to all teams involved. It's a great concept and hopefully it will increase exposure for everyone, as people discover sites they had previously been unfamiliar with.

**UPDATE** PhoulBallz has advanced to the 2nd round of the tournament. When voting for the next round begins, I will post further details. Thanks to those of you who voted!

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

A dominant hurler in college, Brown posted a 13-1 record along with a 1.95 ERA in 17 starts in 2014.  A solid performer on the minor league mound as well, the California native notched a 5-4 record with a pair of saves, a 3.82 ERA along with an 11.0 K/9 mark in 45 relief appearances for the Double-A Reading Fightin Phils last season.

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
