Expecting him to be anything but depth that doesn't kill you at this point seems awfully iffy.

And I'm fine with this idea if that's what it is, but for some reason there seems to be more interest in him than that

The only thing worse than finding confirmation of Blanton's signing, will be hearing how much money we wasted doing it.

Anything over $1628 is too much

Ya, I certainly don't think this is instead of McCarthy, Sanchez, Marcum et al.

But I don't even like Blanton much as a 5th starter.

Because I don't even want to think about a Weaver, Wilson, Hanson, Richards, Blanton rotation.

Relax folks I highly doubt he will be a starter. Prob just some long bullpen help/ insurance incase someone like Cj or McCarthy gets hurt, that's my guess.

YOU CAN NEVER HAVE ENOUGH PITCHING
