Blanton Out 3-6 Weeks

1 Apr

If the Mets are going to win the NL East, they are going to need some help from their divisional rivals.

While rooting for injuries in the opposition’s camp is not a habit of mine, it is a break when it happens.

The Phillies suffered a major loss today as Joe Blanton is out 3-6 weeks with a strained oblique muscle. These injuries tend to linger.

Philadelphia is a very top-heavy rotation so the loss of Blanton will keep the Phillies close in the division. It is a story worth keeping an eye on, especially if Cole Hamels struggles.
