Blanton may still pitch in 2011

He’s alive!

Well this comes as fantastic news for those, including a handful of my friends, who love Joe Blanton.

Blanton may be a bull pen option in the playoffs. I personally don’t want him to rush back, especially since he doesn’t really provide the Phillies with anything special in the pen.

The Phillies are pretty set with pitching in the pen, plus their starters go seven innings. There are about 4-5 options I’d rather see pitching in the 8th and 9th inning over a less-than 100% Blanton anyway. I take this with a grain of salt.
