I am just one man...

Occasionally, I hear from people who say things like, "You guys do a really good job (at PhoulBallz.com)!"  I met some people on Sunday at the Reading game in Trenton that were very complimentary of this site and they asserted that same sentiment.  I heard from well-known, and retired, Philadelphia sports columnist Bill Conlin with such a message a few months back.  The usual e-mail from a player's family or ex-teammate typically states that sort of thought.  And now I see a post from SoundofPhilly addressing me as "gentlemen".

World, I assure you that I am a lone man.  Of course, the PhoulBallz Podcast has a co-host and producer named Tug Haines, but this site's daily written content is served up by just me.

Compliments and plugs for this site are truly appreciated, but, in case there's extensive confusion, misconceptions or just bad assumptions made, I wish to state, once and for all, what you read here is posted by me, Reverend Ballz, AKA the Pale Prospect Professional, AKA Jason H. Ballzino, AKA the Methodical Minors Master, AKA Daz Diligence, AKA Jay Floyd.

Okay, I suppose offering up no less than five alternate names for myself, as though I am a member of the Wu Tang Clan, was not the best way to assert the whole solo identity concept, but, hopefully, you'll all understand what I'm saying.

Thanks to you, for the support over the years.  I thoroughly enjoy being a guy folks can rely on for inside access to the minor leagues and more.

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

Prospect Nation 2012: #1 RHP Trevor May

With a massively impressive campaign in 2011 for the Class A Advanced Clearwater Threshers, right-handed starting pitcher Trevor May locked down his spot as Philadelphia's top prospect and is on the fast track toward the big leagues. He is the reigning Paul Owens Award winner, given to the top pitcher and player in the Phillies' developmental system each year. In 27 starts with the Threshers in 2011, May posted a 10-8 record with a 3.63 ERA, while striking out a Florida State League leading 208 batters in 151 1/3 innings. He also held opposing hitters to a .221 average. The Phillies' 4th round draft pick from 2008, May earned the win in the 50th annual Florida State League All-Star Game at Bright House Field last year. He also was twice named FSL Pitcher of the Week and earned Phillies Minor League Pitcher of the Month honors for June. After signing with Philadelphia, May helped lead the rookie level Gulf Coast League Phillies to a championship in 2008. In 5 regular
