GLENDALE, ARIZONA - DECEMBER 20: Offensive tackle Jordan Mailata #68 of the Philadelphia Eagles takes the field with teammates during the NFL game against the Arizona Cardinals at State Farm Stadium on December 20, 2020 in Glendale, Arizona. The Cardinals defeated the Eagles 33-26.

While there are many clubs in the world, from the night club to the rotary club, to the billy club, to the turkey club, Club Tyrone is one for sports guys who don’t get the credit they deserve. Club Tyrone is about people who are underdogs but shouldn’t be.

Some (me) have said that being named to this club is right up there with winning a Nobel Prize or Pulitizer. Many times, people don’t get the love and shine that they deserve despite excellence. The Club Tyrone system is to find a guy who isn’t being talked about that is capable of great things.

When those players perform, customers get specials at Club Tyrone. Once a guy is in, he’s in unless he does something negative/illegal off the field. I have also banned some guys from Club Tyrone in the past.

People Banned From Club Tyrone

Odubel Herrera was banned after his domestic violence case.

Furkan Korkmaz was banned when he stopped getting better & asked for a trade. I also had to hold him responsible for being the 26th pick in the 2016 NBA Draft & Pascal Siakam being the 27th pick. Imagine the Sixers’ fate if Colangelo doesn’t make that mistake. (The Sixers also drafted Timothé Luwawu-Cabarrot 24th overall that year).

Jalen Reagor was banned because Howie should have drafted Jefferson. He also seemed to let the pressure get to him. We can’t have that at Club Tyrone.

The Criteria

I am always looking for suggestions to add to the club, but they must follow a certain criteria. They must be underrated in some way, but still good in their role. Bryce Harper for example wouldn’t be eligible because he isn’t underrated. They can’t be afraid of the moment.

While the club has had many hits, there have been misses over the years. This current crop is the strongest in history.

Here Are The 11 Current Members Of Club Tyrone

  • Justin Anderson

    He is the Club Tyrone OG. Who amongst us can’t remember the great defensive effort he gave against Dwyane Wade? You can’t? Well, it happened, and it was magical. He is tough player who needs to be back in the NBA.

    Justin Anderson #23 of the Philadelphia 76ers celebrates his basket in the second half against the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden

  • Jordan Mailata

    Another OG of Club Tyrone. He became a member in 2019 before he ever played for the Eagles. What is not to like about a guy that size coming from Australia trying to play in the NFL? The fact that he has become a massive part of the Eagles’ future wasn’t expected, but we are glad it happened.

    Jordan Mailata #68 of the Philadelphia Eagles celebrates on the field after defeating the New York Giants 38-7 in the NFC Divisional Playoff game at Lincoln Financial Field on January 21, 2023 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

  • Ranger Suarez

    Nobody in the world is cooler than Ranger Suarez. When they ask him to start, he performs. When he has been asked to come out of the bullpen in the postseason, he performs. He plays smooth defense, and his heart rate rarely rises. He is the fastest climbing members of the roster.

    PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA - APRIL 16: Ranger Suárez #55 of the Philadelphia Phillies throws a pitch in the top of the first inning against the Colorado Rockies at Citizens Bank Park on April 16, 2024 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

  • Josh Sweat

    The best sack celebration in the NFL is in Club Tyrone. A Super Bowl champion who has become a starting stalwart with the team. I was worried that he wouldn’t be back when the talk was about his and Reddick’s exit. Sweat will bounce back this year.  

    LANDOVER, MARYLAND - SEPTEMBER 25: Defensive end Josh Sweat #94 of the Philadelphia Eagles celebrates a sack on quarterback Carson Wentz #11 of the Washington Commanders during the first quarter at FedExField on September 25, 2022 in Landover, Maryland.

  • Mickey Moniak

    The best Mickey in the history of the MLB. Moniak is still just 26 years old. Don’t count out the former #1 overall pick out. He hit 14 home runs in 2023. Plus, he netted you Brandon Marsh in a trade.

    CLEARWATER, FLORIDA - MARCH 31: Mickey Moniak #16 of the Philadelphia Phillies hits an RBI double in the third inning against the New York Yankees during a Grapefruit League spring training game at BayCare Ballpark on March 31, 2022 in Clearwater, Florida.

  • Edmundo Sosa

    This is a guy who brings a lot of energy. He has been very good since he joined the Phillies. Some are calling for him to play more, but either way he is a very valuable piece. He brings joy when he plays.

    MIAMI, FLORIDA - MAY 12: Edmundo Sosa #33 of the Philadelphia Phillies celebrates with teammates in the dugout after scoring against the Miami Marlins during the sixth inning at loanDepot park on May 12, 2024 in Miami, Florida.

  • Joel Farabee

    Farabee is currently the only Flyer in the club. He has not yet gotten to the level that I thought he would. I still think he has 30 goals in him. Maybe 2024-2025 is the year he takes the step.

    PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA - MARCH 04: Joel Farabee #86 of the Philadelphia Flyers looks on against the St. Louis Blues at the Wells Fargo Center on March 04, 2024 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

  • Adam Haseley

    This one may have been a miss. At the time he was a 1st round pick who got to the majors quickly. Now we see that while he has a decent glove, his bat is just not up to par.  

    PHOENIX, ARIZONA - AUGUST 06: Adam Haseley #40 of the Philadelphia Phillies hits a RBI single against the Arizona Diamondbacks during the fourth inning of the MLB game at Chase Field on August 06, 2019 in Phoenix, Arizona.

  • Johan Rojas

    Last season he went from a complete afterthought in the minors to a starter is center field in the postseason. He still needs to grow at the plate, but he plays plus defense. The change in mindset to be better defensively started with him.

    MIAMI, FLORIDA - MAY 11: Johan Rojas #18 of the Philadelphia Phillies attempts to catch the ball for an out against the Miami Marlins during the first inning of the game at loanDepot park on May 11, 2024 in Miami, Florida.

  • Kody Clemens

    Kody with a K is the newest member. I didn’t think he would be such a heady guy, but it is impossible not to like him. He has had a big shadow hanging over him from his dad forever and he has persevered. I don’t even mind that his name is spelled incorrectly.

    PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA - MAY 18: Kody Clemens #2 of the Philadelphia Phillies is doused with water by Brandon Marsh #16 and Bryson Stott #5 after the Phillies defeated the Washington Nationals 4-3 in a 10 inning game at Citizens Bank Park on May 18, 2024 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Clemens hit the tying home run in the ninth inning.

  • Cameron Payne

    Fans were skeptical when the Sixers acquired Cam Payne. Fans took a liking to Patrick Beverly even though he is very poor at basketball now. Payne came in and played well for the Sixers, while Beverly now must serve a suspension IF he is in the league in 2024. I hope they bring Payne back.  

    PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA - MAY 02: Cameron Payne #22 of the Philadelphia 76ers celebrates after a play against the New York Knicks during the third quarter of game six of the Eastern Conference First Round Playoffs at the Wells Fargo Center on May 02, 2024 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
