Phillies Considering Blanton Trade

We mentioned this last night, but it deserves its own post: AOL FanHouse's Ed Price says the Phillies are exploring interest in arbitration-eligible pitcher Joe Blanton.  Blanton is due a decent-sized raise on this year's $5.475MM salary.  Price could seek a cheaper starter in return and then allocate the savings to the bullpen.

Blanton, 29 in a few days, made 31 starts in the regular season and another two in the postseason.  He posted a solid 7.5 K/9 and 2.7 BB/9, but allowed 30 home runs in 195.3 innings.  He was homer-prone on the road as well as at home.
