    Default Joe Blanton

    Would anyone be interested in trading for him? The Phils want to move him. His salary last year was 3 million.

    lup.... don't know where you got your info from but Blanton made 7 mil last year 1 mil salary and 6 mil signing bonus. He is due to make 8.5 mil the next 2 years plus performance bonuses after that he is a FA.

    I guess the question is do you think the Pirates will be contenders in 2 years?

    It's been said that Philly will have to eat half his salary to move him.

    I assume the phillies are dying to literally give blanton away. If they would eat over half his salary and not require a decent prospect, i'd take him. Blanton isn't very good but he's prolly as good as Ohlendorf and better than Correia, Moaholm, and Morton.

    Maybe, I've always liked Blanton. I don't remember him missing alot of starts.

    But, he's not a top end of the rotation even here although he would bring alot to the clubhouse.

    I'll take Blanton and 3mil of his salary and the Phils can have Doumit and his salary.

    Phils definately could use someone like Doumit right now.
