Joe Blanton – Not To Go To Sox

Are you totally confused about what is going on with Joe Blanton? Just the other day it was tweeted that he was supposed to be leaving the Phillies and going to the Sox. Well now it looks like this has fallen through for some reason. Will Joe Blanton stay with the Phillies?

An insider of the Red Sox claims he has no idea how this rumor got started. He also said that he is sure that it is not happening. Whoever got this started most likely just wanted to get a good buzz going. The Sox would have little need for Blanton since he has really began to dim as a pitcher.

The Phillies have been looking to move him because of his contract. Joe Blanton is owed 8.5 in both 2011 and 2010 under the terms of his current contract which he signed just last January. I don’t know about you but I wouldn’t mind having a pay check like that. Joe Blanton should just be happy that he has a team to be on right now.
