Yesterday the Phils traded pitcher Joe Blanton to the Los Angeles Dodgers in a waiver deal for a player to be named later or cash considerations. Blanton has been with the Phils since August 2008 and was part of the World Series team that year. I wish Blanton all the luck with the Dodgers and thanks for the memories.
Blanton's final 2012 pitching stats are an 8-9 record, a 4.59 ERA and 115 strikeouts in 133.1 innings pitched.
Talk to you soon,
