:D:

Both Jon Heyman and Ken Rosenthal are reporting the Red Sox and Phillies have a deal in place for Joe Blanton.


BUT Red Sox deny it for now


RochieWBZ Sox source: "no reason to think a deal for Joe Blanton will happen" #redsox #mlb #wbztv

Why would Boston want Blanton? Have they finally given up on Dice-K?

That's weird. I wonder if Boston made a preliminary deal with them to **** over the Yankees again.

I guess the Red Sox need a stranglehold on the "mediocre SP market."

They think Dice-K needs a new location....very small Japanese community in Boston, far more Korean and Chinese.

I don't know what NYY does next - Pavano the best out there but that won't happen

According to ESPN... Blanton in NOT going to the Red Sox...possible destination is Milwaukee if the Phils will pick up some of his remaining salary.

Sounds like he would be a great fit in Minnesota. The only problem would be that, like Jason Kubel, he would be lights out against the White Sox (.02 ERA).

I've heard that around here too, but it would probably have to be around 1/2 the salary for that to happen.
