Blanton to the Phillies

Buster Olney reports, to my phone(hehe), that the Phillies have reached an agreement to acquire Blanton from the A's.

Maybe. but with the A's still kinda in it, he probably won't get the call soon. I would expect maybe a september call-up, for I would think that that Angeles would pull away by then.

Check Gio's minor league numbers at AAA:

7-6, 4.34 ERA, 110IP, 117K, 53BB

Obviously great strikeout numbers, but a ton of walks. Don't know if he's ready just yet.

True. I don't think it would me smart with A's part if they called up Gio NOW since he doesn't look ready to pitch in the majors yet.

ERA could be lower too.
Don't get me wrong, if this guy gets the call I will most likely pick-up him up.

Joe Blanton replaces Adam Eaton in the Phillies Rotation; likely to start Tuesday vs. Mets.
