Interviews with Cord Sandberg and Nick Williams on the Felske Files Podcast

It's been a week since I have published anything on the site here, with life getting in the way at times, it can be difficult to always have fresh material. Without anything new ready to go, I wanted to post a pair of fun interviews I did with some talented outfielders in the Phillies' system that were published elsewhere online.

Throughout the season this year I will be contributing exclusive interviews to John Stolnis' top-notch podcast known as the Felske Files. Recently, he debuted an older never-before-published interview with Triple-A Lehigh Valley's Nick Williams, who was a big part of the Cole Hamels to Texas trade. Also on the show, a brand new interview with Class A Lakewood's Cord Sandberg was released.

Williams, a 23-year-old lefty batter, sports a .261 average with three homers, 13 RBI and three steals in 38 games thus far this season. The Texas native was the Rangers' 2nd round draft choice in 2012.

Sandberg, a 22-year-old left-handed hitter, is batting .289 with three home runs, 19 RBI and three stolen bases through 38 games this year. A Florida native, Sandberg, who is no relation to former Phils manager Ryne Sandberg, was the team's 3rd round draft pick in 2013.

In the top embedded player below, episode 112 of the show features my "Nine Silly-ass Questions" interview with Nick (26:50 mark) in which offers help for naming my son, and answers other generally nonsensical inquiries.

In the second embedded player below, I sat down with Sandberg, who also participated in a session of Nine Silly-ass Questions, including inquiries about ballpark food and music on episode 114 of John's outstanding program. This edition also features a call-in interview with IronPigs hurler Tom Eshelman.

Of course, the show also features an array of key topics dealing with the big league team. This podcast is definitely worth fitting into your regular listening rotation. Check it out!

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
