PhoulBallz Interview With Carlos Ruiz


Carlos Ruiz spent the past couple days rehabbing from concussion symptoms with the Phillies Class A affiliate Lakewood BlueClaws. The stop was a success, as Ruiz went 4-for-8 with 2 doubles in two games played for Lakewood. "Chooch" is expected to be activated to the Major League roster this weekend. I had the opportunity to speak with the man they call "Chooch" about his return to his minor league roots, the Phillies pitching staff, his feelings on the phans as well as his feelings on frozen treats.

Check out the media player below to listen to the full interview.

This interview was recorded during BP. Afterward, I fetched my laptop, headed to the lockerroom and showed the .gif image to Chooch. He laughed, but was fixed on the TV, watching Cliff Lee/Rangers news unfold.
After the game, he passed me on his way out, shook my hand, then thrusted his fist in true IceCream4Chooch fashion and smiled at me.

It is official- Chooch loves IceCream(4Chooch)!

Ryan Madson was out on the town (Manayunk) over the weekend and was photographed acting pretty with a purse slung over his shoulder and being chummy with a friend of mine. Can I really call him a friend, if he's actually my friends' friend , and I only prank called him once? Sure, why the heck not?!

2022 Top Phillies Prospects Countdown: #13 OF Ethan Wilson

Taken with the Phillies' second round draft pick (49th overall) last year, outfielder Ethan Wilson has landed among the top prospects in the organization. A co-freshman of the year in 2019, with South Alabama, Wilson has been on the radar of some big league teams for quite a while.  In his junior season last year, Wilson batted .313 with seven home runs and 30 RBI.  When his collegiate season was through, the lefty hitter quickly debuted in the minors.   In 30 games with Class A Clearwater last year, Wilson tallied a .215 average with three homers, 17 RBI and two steals. Listed at six-foot-one, 210-pounds, Wilson opened the 2022 campaign with Class A Advanced Jersey Shore.  The 22-year-old has been slow to start offensively, but confidence and poise are not a problem for this strong, promising individual. On the base paths, Wilson is quick and can contribute with his feet.  Defensively, the Alabama native will likely play left or right field moving forward.  Possessing an ability t
