Phillies Get Joe Blanton: Updated!


Blanton is having a rough year with a 77 ERA+, but he is an innings eater and a good back end of the rotation guy. I will also add that Joe Blanton in that Philly bandbox is a recipe for disaster...everybody puts wood on the ball against Blanton.

The Athletics get second baseman Adrian Cardenas, pitcher Josh Outman and outfielder Matthew Spencer, all minor leaguers.

Giving up Cardenas in this deal is probably what sold it to the As....great young prospect with big upside.
