Vote in The Phield's Sweet 16

The Philadelphia baseball blog tournament known as The Phield enters it's elite phase today as the final 16 sites begin to battle it out for supremacy in the regional blogosphere. This very site, PhoulBallz.com, meets its toughest challenge yet, as it faces the #2 seed Phuture Phillies, which is a solid site that features loads of content on the minor leagues.

As I like to do each round, I would like to provide all readers a handful of reasons to get behind PhoulBallz.com. As such, I've inquired with some of moderate celebrity types to provide their endorsements of this site. Here is how that went down...


Seth Jabour (pictured), of the indie rock band Les Savy Fav, (which you might be familiar with from your favorite MLB video game's soundtrack) stated: Phoul Ballz is the grandest, most rootin-tootin blog to ever grace the monitor on my grandma's computer!

Chris, the leader of the lovely Phils blog known as Long Drive, was aggressive with his preference in The Phield tournament: Vote for Phoul Ballz, because if you don't, you are admitting that you are a Mets fan, and thus admitting you are a failure at life."

Mike Krenek, of WOBM AM & Fox Sports 1310's Shore Sports Report, had this to say: If you have an erection lasting longer than 6 hours, consult your doctor...unless you're a Phillies phan discovering PhoulBallz.com for the very first time, then it's totally normal.

Phillies pitching prospect Justin De Fratus (who happened to be warming up yesterday for the Phillies, when Greg Dobbs ended the Phils' spring game against the Astros with a walk-off RBI hit...& pictured) spoke rather highly of PhoulBallz.com, when he said: It's good.

Blue Jays catching prospect Travis D'Arnaud was asked his thoughts on PhoulBallz.com, and his reply was: Oh, yeah. That site is so hot that when Jay says hello to his readers, they should call it a HEAT WAVE.

Lakewood BlueClaws broadcaster Greg Giombarrese is a phine phriend of Phoul Ballz and said the following: PhoulBallz is the phunniest, most phantastic Phillies blog out there. All the most phervent and phanatical phans should make it their phirst stop every day!


So, as you can see, PhoulBallz.com is kind of like the Wu-Tang Clan...it ain't nuttin' to f--- wit'!

If pro ballplayers, rock stars, professional play-by-play men, other bloggers and daily talk show hosts are down with this site in The Phield tournament, perhaps you should be too. Vote for PhoulBallz.com in The Phield between 8am & 8pm on Friday. I appreciate your support. Click HERE to vote.

**UPDATE**
PhoulBallz.com lost in The Phield blog tournament's Sweet 16 round on Friday. This site is proud to have advanced that far and is appreciative of all the support it got from it's readers and friends. Thanks to all involved and congratulations to those who are still active in The Phield.

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
