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.

Rappers in Phillies Caps

Weekend greetings to you phine pholks out there. Today's post features pictures of rappers wearing Phillies caps. Why rappers in Phillies caps, you ask? Because... Any other questions? We will start things off properly by going with a highly recognizable hip hop star. 50 Cent stays constantly relavant by consistantly creating radio friendly material to help sell (G) units, while he "keeps it real" by still rapping about the thug life he lived before becoming the 2nd highest earning black entertainer in America. 50 is seen here in a recent interview rocking a throw-back Phillies cap. Next up we'll use a throw-back screen cap from what may be the very first major appearance by a rapper wearing Phillies gear. Chuck D, of legendary rap group Public Enemy, wore a Phillies cap in the music video for rap anthem Fight The Power in 1989. The song was the lead single from the soundtrack for Spike Lee's film Do The Right Thing . Next up we'll go with some home gro

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

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'
