PhoulBallz Interview: Nats Prospect Cutter Dykstra

Cutter Dykstra, son of former Phillies outfielder Lenny Dykstra, is a prospect in the Washington system.  Drafted in the 2nd round by the Milwaukee Brewers in 2008, Cutter was traded to the Nationals last year, along with cash, for Nyjer Morgan.  The 22-year-old infielder is putting together a solid season this year with the Class A Hagerstown Suns.

Through 34 games with the Suns this season, Dykstra has posted a .298 batting average with 8 doubles, a triple, a HR, 18 RBI and 13 stolen bases.

Those that grew up watching his father play baseball would certainly be familiar with the type of ballplayer Cutter is.  The 5-foot-11-inch 180-pounder is aggressive, quick and athletic on the field.  The versatile youngster plays second base, shortstop and third base for Hagerstown.  Additionally, he has played the outfield quite a bit in his pro career as well.

Recently, I caught up with Cutter, who spoke about his ties to the Phillies system, his father, his girlfriend (actress Jamie Lynn Sigler), his career progress and plenty more.  Check out the media player below to hear that full interview.

This Guy Speaks For All of You

This individual, interviewed by FOX 29 on Friday as the Phillies arrived back at Citizens Bank Park, said it best. When asked how he felt regarding the Phillies, he told Steve Keeley that he was, "Stoked, baby!" The unidentified phanatic then proclaimed, "We are talking about the Fightins here, the Fightins! Said!" Check out the media player below, as the transcribed version certainly does not do this phireball of phandom justice.

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
