Yeah, it was a meatball by JC but like I said earlier it was over when Baez walked onto that mound. That game winning hit was a routine fly ball if no one is on third or if there were 2 outs, but Baez painted himself and whoever that was going to replace him into a corner.

At least Romero had the decency to have it end quickly.

These games shouldn't be like this. ****ing bs that the lineup can't muster up more than 2 ****ing runs against the Cardinals.

garcia has been dominant this year, but this offense is pathetic as currently constructed.

Why is Baez still in the majors? The guy sucks. Has he ever had a good outing for us?

I remember when Baez was a ****ing solid closer for Tampa Bay. Truth be told I was happy when they signed him. Now... It's awful. It's like I want to like him but he goes out there and ****s up all the time.

Aside from the obvious, there's something really great about having such a deep starting pitching staff: You can move one of them at some point to pick up a hitter or two.

If they move Hamels, I am done. i will cheer for the pirates. They have one of the better farm system with lots really good prospects in the lower levels.

They aren't trading any of their starters.

Blanton probably wouldn't procure the bat they need, and they signed Lee because of the debacle that ensued from trading him in the first place. The only way an ace leaves is via FA.

or retirement. Hamels is a FA after the 2012 season and with the money coming off the books with Lidge and Raul, getting him signed should be their top priority.

Eh, you might be able to get a pending free agent corner OF from a non-contending team for Blanton (don't know who is out there exactly) given that he's signed next year.

Unless you unload the farm system, you're not going to get an All-Star back. They just really need Dom Brown to get healthy and be the player everyone kind of expects him to be.

I'm not sure who's out there, either...and, frankly, if a team like the Royals becomes sellers, I don't want anything to do with guys like Melky Cabrera or Jeff Francouer. I don't trust them further than I can throw them.

I'm fine with them not being able to get an all-star. But I'd look for someone with a decent/consistent track record. If you can't get that, it's probably more sensible to see what Brown can do than dilute the pitching.

I'd be happy to trade Blanton even if we have to eat 75% of his salary this season in the deal. Get him out of here and give Worley the #5 spot he deserves. Ship Kendrick out while we're at it.

He has almost no value, unless of course the Phillies decide that they will eat most of his contract, which they won't.

I think Worley has way more value than Blanton. Seriously, if we could trade Blanton and put Worley in his place, I'd be a happy guy.

"You can never have enough pitching" is a saying for a reason. If we have to eat a bunch of salary to move Blanton, and still don't get anything that helps the offense more than marginally, it's really not worth experimenting with. This might hold especially true when you consider how close the team has become over the last few years, and how much they've emphasized that themselves.

I don't get why so many people have such disdain for Blanton. Yeah, he's superfluous on this team, but that's not his fault. And for ****'s sake, I've watched too many Tyler Greens and Calvin Maduros to be uppity about that.

Maybe because it's mid-May and things are still shaking out, but Joe Blanton would absolutely have some value come a month from now.

Everybody likes to **** on the Yankees for that kind of stuff, but they're playing within the rules. And, newsflash, the Phillies have pretty much put themselves up on that pedestal, too. They've done whatever the **** they've felt necessary to land their guy over the last few years.

Just call Brown up now and start him and Mayberry the rest of the year. The both of them cant be any worse than Francisco and Ibanez.

If he gets back into his normal routine, and someone loses a starter... He will have some value. Not many guys are as reliable as Joe.
