Angels Official Website: Blanton pitches 2 1/3 innings with increased deception


Recommended Posts

Blanton, with $8.5 million left on his contract and an uncertain future with the team, gave up a single to Jed Lowrie, a single to Josh Donaldson and a two-run double to Yoenis Cespedes to start his outing in the fifth. But the 33-year-old right-hander retired seven of the next eight batters he faced, walking one and striking out two to finish on a positive note.

 

I haven't looked at the box score, but isn't the time of Blanton's renaissance about the time when teams pull everyone who played above Class A ball the season before?

Nah, Lowrie, Donaldson and Cespedes did the damage.

isn't that the opposite of what he asked? he's talking about the next eight.

These articles aren't written for fans like us, they are written for the casual fan. Secondly why get all bent out of shape over what Mike says? He has made a career of not really saying anything of interest to the media. If you read that and came away with Mike is going to give Blanton a bunch of starts when the season starts then you either are gullible or you thought that before Mike opened his mouth.

As for his performance yesterday, I didn't see it, but he will be given multiple opportunities in spring it's as simple as that.

Ibanez was stellar in left field the first inning Blanton pitched. Always makes sense to play shallow against a right handed batter when you have his wheels. Did any of you see how quickly he got to that ball that bounced in front of the wall? Definitely kept that from being an inside the park home run.

Blanton pitching well enough this spring is pretty much the worst possible thing that could happen to this team.  Only way it could work is if they trade him before the season starts.

 

He sucks and has sucked for quite a while now.  Keep him the hell away from this team.

Nobody will trade for him.  Once he gets DFA'd he will end up with a minor league contract somewhere.

 

Pitching well this spring won't do anything to replace the stank of his last three seasons.  Scouts and teams aren't that stupid.

 

BY FAR, Dipoto's worst move.

It's almost as if 41 year olds shouldn't be playing the OF
