Phillies Looking to Deal Joe Blanton?

It was reported last week that the Phillies were trying to trade Joe Blanton after the Cliff Lee signing. But those rumors quickly died down.

This morning Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports is reporting the Phillies are indeed looking to trade Joe Blanton.

Blanton is scheduled to make 8.5 million in 2011 and 2012 which might be considered a little below market value when compared to deals being signed this off season. It has been widely reported that the Phillies would try to trim payroll to help recover money alloted to Cliff Lee when they signed him last week.
