This is ridiculous.

rotoworld wrote:The Cincinnati Enquirer confirms that the Athletics and Reds have discussed a deal for Joe Blanton.
The Athletics reportedly asked for a package including Homer Bailey or Johnny Cueto, plus Joey Votto and a third player, meaning they're going to have to tone down their request if a deal is to be worked out.


Just how good do they think Blanton is? :-°

This was posted today on mlbtraderumors.com:

Dodgers, Reds Pursuing Blanton
The Dodgers' rotation stands at Brad Penny, Derek Lowe, Chad Billingsley, Hiroki Kuroda, Jason Schmidt, and Esteban Loaiza - six deep on the surface. But Kuroda has never pitched in the Majors, Schmidt is a question mark, and Loaiza may not have much left. More and more, it's looking like Ned Colletti wants to add one more veteran starter.

Troy E. Renck believes the Dodgers are after Joe Blanton, with the A's asking for Andre Ethier, Andy LaRoche, and a prospect. I could see this happening. Ethier is fairly expendable, and the Dodgers have not seemed keen on LaRoche recently. Maybe L.A. would move separately to acquire Joe Crede or even try to get Eric Chavez along with Blanton. Renck thinks the Dodgers may be interested in Livan Hernandez as an alternative to Blanton.

He also says the Reds are "pushing hard" for Blanton, which jives with the previous info. The Reds are still kind of shaky behind Aaron Harang and Bronson Arroyo.

I'm not sure if teams realize this, but Joe Blanton is a pretty mediorcre pitcher, nothing special in my eyes.
