Blanton Is Back

Joe Blanton hopes to make something out of this season.

The Phillies activated him from the 60-day disabled list today.  Blanton had been on the DL since May 23 (retroactive to May 16) with right elbow inflammation. Blanton, 30, made one rehab appearance with Class A Lakewood on Friday, pitching one perfect inning . Blanton was 1-2 with a 5.50 ERA in six starts for the Phillies this season. He will be pitching out of the bullpen the rest of the season.

Kyle Kendrick has been reinstated from the paternity leave list.  Kendrick and his wife welcomed their first child, a daughter, over the weekend.


Check out my Facebook page. Follow me on Twitter. Pick up a copy of my book.


Will probably need both Blanton and Kendrick over the next two days with the bullpen blowout yesterday.

Who needs a bullpen with Cliff Lee on the mound?

Most comical moment of the night when Phillies fans were giving the Braves the chop. But who would have known with McCarthy yammering on and on and on about an overflowing sink which had happened when the Phillies were in Cincinnati almost a week ago.

Anyone else notice that Will Queef hasn’t been trolling around here the past 2 months??? I guess even that prick figured out how much better the Phils are than the Braves.
