Oakland Fire Sale Continues
Well, Adam Eaton can finally be put out of his misery. The A's shipped Joe Blanton and his 4.96 ERA to Philadelphia for three prospects, including top 2b prospect Adrian Cardenas who will probably be the MVP in 2010 if Billy Beane wants him. Blanton is an innings-eater, but he hasn't been very good since early last year. He could be a serviceable spot starter against some of the weaker NL foes as he will have the Phillies potent offensive backing him up, but he will also be moving to a much more hitter-friendly park.
