RHP Joe Blanton was claimed off waivers by the Dodgers for a player to be named later or cash considerations. Kyle Kendrick will get the start against the Arizona Diamondbacks in place of Blanton tonight.
Blanton was a workhorse for the Phillies and ate up valuable innings and great as the 4 or 5 guy.
Good Bye Big Joe and thanks for all the good memories getting that ring in 08.
That leaves only 6 players from the 2008 world series team. Oh how times have changed.
