Brotherly Love, De Fratus Style

Steven De Fratus happens to be related to one of the Phillies' top young relief pitchers, a fellow named Justin.

Steven's nickname for his adoring brother is "J-Bone" and Steven is hoping that moniker will catch on with the Philadelphia faithful some day soon. It's clear that a rookie on the rise with a team already loaded with household names might be in need of a little love from the fan base. Wouldn't it be a fine time to let Justin know that, even in the off-season, the fans are behind him? In addition to that, it's the season of giving. What about providing Steven with a bit of love as well, by kicking the nickname of his choosing into gear by sending Justin a shout out?

If there's any doubt that you want to help Steven achieve a bit of success via insider handle usage, just take a look at how, even months after it happened, the elder De Fratus brother is still taking jabs at Justin in relation to how close he came to surrendering a homerun to Cardinals star Lance Berkman in his big league debut.

As overly used as the phrase has become, "The City of Brotherly Love" is a term that applies, even for the De Fratus siblings, who live clear across the nation in California. Support Steven's cause...send a "Hi, J-Bone" directly to @JustinDeFratus, via Twitter.

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.

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'
