Jim Salisbury today dropped Joe Blanton as someone in whom the Phillies are showing interest. Blanton is 5-12 with a 4.96 ERA this season, carrying a 77 ERA+. That’s what Adam Eaton has.
For his career, Blanton is an even 100 in the ERA+ category. Absolutely average.
Don’t do it, Phils. It’s not worth it.
