BLANTON MASTERFUL IN PHILS 5-1 WIN

BIG BABY BLANTON DOMINATED THE MARLINS LINEUP

BIG BABY BLANTON DOMINATED THE MARLINS LINEUP

Yesterday the Phils traveled to Jupiter, Florida to take on those pesky Marlins. Blanton absolutely cruised through his start throwing 6 innings of no run 1 hit ball. He ended up throwing only 56 pitches and 44 of them were thrown for strikes. Even more impressive was Blanton threw first pitch strikes to all 20 batters he faced. The way I look at our rotation I think a big year from Blanton would definitely be a huge difference maker for the 2009 Phillies. I compare it to how the Mets would benefit from a big year from Mike Pelfrey, only one difference there. Blanton is our #4 and Pelfrey is their #2, good luck with that Mets.

The Phils stay in Jupiter and this time take on the Cardinals at 1:05 today. Carlos Carrasco will get the start and would pretty much have to throw a no-no to get any further consideration for the 5th starter job.
