Philadelphia Phillies – Welcome Joe Blanton !!


   Tonight I heard that the Phillies acquired Joe Blanton through a trade of 3 minor league prospects.  The Phillies sent Adrian Cardenas, Josh Outman and Matthew Spencer in return for the solid right handed hurler.  With Brett Myers still slated to return on 07/23 against the Mets that pushes Adam Eaton out of the rotation and into the bullpen.  This will allow the Phillies to fill a a right handed void where Tom Gordon was at prior to his stint on the D.L.  Now all we need is another lefty in the bullpen as well as another catcher that is productive and another lefty bench player to platoon with Jayson Werth in right field.  Sorry Jenkins . . . .  Oh. and the answer is not So Taguchi either !!  You can check out some more info on Joe at his blog site:
