This kind of surprises me; Blanton isn't really all that great, and Philly was mentioned as one of the more likely destinations for Bedard. Since nothing of real substance was ever reported regarding Bedard heading that way, it makes me wonder whether the M's have decided to hold on to him for the time being. (Or, it's entirely possible that the Phillies wanted help now and Bedard is hurt, so whatever.) If the M's want to move Washburn, they'd better get crackin'.
Anywho, so long Joey Cupcakes; don't let the AL West's screen door hit you in the gigantic ass on the way out.
