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!

Frosty Phillies Favorites: 2021 Edition w/ DJ Stewart

Season's greetings to all of you! It's that time of the year to celebrate and enjoy the holiday season. Every year at Christmas time, I survey a group of Phillies prospects about what they get excited for during the holidays.  This year, we focus on just one up and coming player, corner infielder DJ Stewart. The 22-year-old righty batter had a solid season in 2021. In 94 games combined with Class A Clearwater and Class A Advanced Jersey Shore, Stewart notched a .265 batting average with 14 home runs, 42 RBI and five stolen bases.  Recently, I talked with DJ to gain his feedback on all of his holiday favorites. Read ahead for that interview... -What's your favorite Christmas movie? My favorite is This Christmas.  My Mother and I would watch it together every Christmas, so it just stuck with me. -What is your favorite Christmas song and which version is best? This Christmas by Chris Brown.  It's the final song of my favorite Christmas movie. -What's your favorit

Biddle slated to make Reading return on Saturday

Jesse Biddle, image- Jay Floyd After a miserable stretch of starts in June, lefty pitcher Jesse Biddle was placed on Double-A Reading's temporary inactive list. On Saturday, he'll make his long awaited return to the FirstEnergy Stadium mound when he starts the first game of the Fightins' scheduled double header against Binghamton. The 22-year-old posted a 0-4 record with a 12.64 ERA in four June starts. It was clear that there was something quite wrong with Biddle, who had missed a start in late May after being pelted with hail and suffering a concussion. A mixture of feelings including confusion and anger were firmly settling in while Biddle's efforts on the mound were not. The Phils saw a need for the Philadelphia native and Germantown Friends School product to take a break. Exams discovered lasting impact on Biddle stemming from the concussion and time off was required. "For me it was an important time not only to take a mental break and to go down

Franco making case for September call up

Maikel Franco, image- Jay Floyd While the minor league season begins to wind down, Lehigh Valley third baseman Maikel Franco continues to go full throttle. As the IronPigs kicked off their final home stand of the season on Saturday with a double header against the division rival Syracuse Chiefs, Franco, who is hoping his season continues on beyond the final day on the regular season calendar, which is Labor Day, September 1st, continued to display his improved offensive efforts going 6-for-7 with two home runs combined in two games while recording a cycle in the night cap. The feat was certainly quite an achievement, but possibly more impressive because it was accomplished in just six offensive innings for the winning home club in game 2, as minor league double headers are slated as seven-inning contests. Franco, who turns 22 years old this week, struggled through the early part of his first Triple-A season, ending June with a .202 batting average and just 28 extra-base hits
