One of the top pitching prospects in the Phillies organization, Jarred Cosart, and a young aspiring TV host from Texas named Amber Leigh Hartman broke off their relationship recently, and it got a little uncomfortable when Amber decided to tweet about it.

Turns out, Jarred didn’t think the breakup was as mutual as she did. The perils of social networking:

Chin up, Jarred. You don’t want to be associated with a Cowboys fan anyway.

UPDATE 1:00 am: It looks like these two kids can’t get on the same page. After word spread about their break-up (don’t worry, I’m ashamed of myself too), Amber announced the two of them have reconciled and decided to give their relationship another go:

In case you haven’t heard, CSNPhilly will broadcast the game between the advanced Class-A Clearwater Threshers and the Palm Beach Cardinals tonight at 7:00. The game will feature promising minor leaguers such as Jiwan “The REAL King” James (pictured), Jonathan Singleton, Joe Savery, Moose Mattair as well as some guys named Chase Utley, Carlos Ruiz, and a pitcher who goes by Roy Oswalt (sounds like a bust to me).

Phillies/Flyers voice Jim Jackson will handle the play-by-play duties and former All-Star reliever Ricky Bottalico will be your Chris Wheeler impersonator for the night. If you aren’t in the Philly area to catch the game live, we’ll hopefully have some highlights on The Fightins later on tonight/tomorrow morning.

Current Clearwater Threshers (and future Phillies) Jiwan James and Jonathan Singleton will be doing a Ustream tonight. If you spend your Friday nights on the internet (and let’s face it, you do) and want to ask some serious questions of a couple of top prospects in the Phillies’ organization, then head on over to The RELL King James Jiwan James’s Ustream channel (YoungPhillie) “tonight around 11:15 or so after our game 2night!!!” to find out stuff like:

  • Which Thresher is the best at ladder golf
  • How many VORPs they have so far this year
  • How do they like their eggs
  • What’s Phinley like when he’s drunk
  • Put shoe on head

So go over the Ustream when you’re hammered and see what you can find out.

H/T to Christina at Philliedelphia for making me aware of this.
