Joe Blanton Is Doing Great

Days after the non-waiver trade deadline, the Phillies shipped Joe Blanton off the Dodgers for a player to be named later and some cash.


So far, the Phillies have gotten the much better end of that deal.


Kentucky Joe has made three starts for LA going 0-2 and has allowed 14 runs in 15 innings. Yesterday against the Pirates he surrendered two 3-run home runs to the same guy before he was ejected from the game for arguing with the home plate umpire.


He leads the NL in home runs allowed.
