Joe Blanton Rumors: Wednesday

As you know, Joe Blanton is considered the young hurler Billy Beane really wants to trade now.  I saw him likened to Ted Lilly – a guy you trade because he’s getting more expensive but not better.

Susan Slusser says the Dodgers "have a strong interest in Blanton."  This dates back to last summer.  The Dodgers, of course, are also in the mix for Erik Bedard.  Slusser also says the Mets are a possibility but lack the young talent the Dodgers have.

Wouldn’t be surprising to see the Phillies check in on Blanton; they did so in July.
