Kendrick Leads Phils to 70th Win

In a tremendous effort, Kyle Kendrick went 8 shut out innings in Colorado on Tuesday night to lock down the Phillies' 70th win of the season, as Philadelphia downed the Rockies by a score of 5-0. In the outing, Kendrick allowed just 4 hits and 2 walks, while striking out 7 batters.

Recently, it has been suspected that the right-handed Kendrick is in danger of losing his starting spot, as veteran hurler Roy Oswalt is slated to return soon from the disabled list. Kendrick would likely move into a relief role, at that point.

Since some of my favorite Twitter folks and I summed up the significance of Kendrick's performance and the Phillies' current status, on the social networking site, I thought I would share some information direct from the tweeterverse. Check it out below.

Just prior to the completion of the win, I pointed out how mediocre the Phillies could become, through the remainder of the season, and still finish with an incredible record.

Beat reporter David Hale offered up some facts pertaining to a couple of Phillies' hurlers.

Another media mack Kevin Cooney dished out some very interesting info on the Phils clubs of the past that failed to exceed the 70-win plateau.

A good friend of PhoulBallz.com, Jaimie, delivered a pop culture reference, albeit one that was backdated 5 years, to express the shocking production that Kendrick had served up.

Ink loving Steph Grace voiced the excitement level of many Philadelphia baseball fans following the victory.

Even Kyle's wife took time to jump in and share some remarks about her sweet little "KK".

Lastly, Coastal King Big Stevie chimed in with a terrifically fruity thought that is just too imperative to overlook.

That's all. Thanks to all these involuntary guest bloggers for their insight and glorious manners of expression. You all have a lovely style and I recognize it.

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

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
