Trevor May is Working on His Music

Now that just about all of the preseason Top 10 prospect lists are out, and players are just now getting to Clearwater, there isn’t a lot of news on the prospects themselves at the moment. So, with that in mind, I figured this would be a good week to spend a little time getting to know our prospects on a more personal level. Thankfully, these finely honed athletes allow us to infiltrate their lives ever so slightly by engaging the Twitter machine.

As such, here’s what was happening in their neck of the woods this week…

You’ll be happy to know that top prospect Trevor May is a well-rounded person. Not only is he committed to perfecting his craft with the hardball, he’s also a mix-master wannabe. In fact, he’s even created a special twitter account for what he calls his “alter-ego” (@DJHeyBeef).

DJ Hey Beef’s latest performance was pretty tubular, as you will be able to tell if you just put on your cans and give it a listen…

And hey, if you like what you heard from DJ Hey Beef, a.k.a. Trevor May, he asks that you do him this solid…

Jonathan Pettibone is apparently a huge fan of DJ Hey Beef, and wants to know where he can score some merch…

Luckily, there actually ARE DJ Hey Beef T-Shirts. Seriously, where can we purchase some of these?

Trevor also wanted us to know that he’s a regular Joe, just like you and me. He does the everyday stuff that he can’t afford to pay someone else to do just yet…

Perhaps a phone call to Nick Burns is in order.

For right-hander Justin De Fratus, who is one of my Twitter favorites, there is a bit of real news to report. Embedded in this article is news that he is actually slightly behind schedule, after feeling a little bit of tightness in his right elbow during long tosses back in January. De Fratus doesn’t seem to think it’s a big deal, but it’s certainly something to keep an eye on. Now, onto the stuff that REALLY matters, like De Fratus’ horrendous taste in television programming…

If by “awesome” you mean rubbing hydrogen peroxide in your eyes is “awesome” then yes, it is an “awesome” show. Justin also seems to harbor some kind of inferiority complex when it comes to Alex Trebek.

I have a secret. Trebek has the answers on the cards! And the contestants are all pod people designed by scientists in a secret lab in Los Alamos, New Mexico.

And in what I think is needless bashing on a fine woman and performer, De Fratus unloads on one of television’s great icons of the early 21st century…

Seriously? How could you hate Flo? She drives a motorcycle!!!

Phillippe Aumont is a guy who has completely turned his career around after a spectacular season in the minors last year out of the bullpen. And embedded in this tweet is an article talking about Aumont’s transformation into a legitimate Top 10 prospect in the Phillies’ organization…

It really would be terrific if some of these Cliff Lee trade prospects turned into something worthwhile.

So, that’s it for this week. But tune in next Tuesday when some of these Phillies prospects may actually have some interesting things to say on the game of baseball, now that they’re actually going to be playing it on a daily basis once again.
