I'm a believer. I picked up Blanton for the 2nd half last year and he didn't dissapoint. I'm looking forward to a good year from him.

He's had one great start, one good start (last night), and two horrendous starts. I would say he needs to show a little more consistency. I believe he will do so this year but it's a matter of when?? Has K.C. next time out so he "should" shut them down, but we'll see.

I have him on my team (again) , but he is sitting on the pine until he proves that last year wasn't a fluke. I think he'll come around and have a decent season (15 wins, 140 Ks, 3.8 ERA?)

Glad I drafted him bc I didn't get Haren.

He does well when he's on my bench but does badly when he starts for me. :~( Go figure!

He gets KC next. Thing I'm kind of concerned about is baserunners. With Kendall behind the plate, baserunners are licking their chops at the SB they can rack up. Thus, can affect Blanton's pitching.

How is Blanton at holding runners?
