I can't believe I'm reading this! Why would they sign Blanton for 3 years-24 million dollars? I don't think he's worth it. I'm saying this as a fan who followed Blanton for two seasons, but seriously- the last I heard was $10 million, and even then. It's not like he's some amazing pitcher- and ERA of 4.05, 1.32 WHIP- He's just average. Sure, he had some bright spots and good streaks during the season, but the rest was just average.
And then there's Duckworth, which I'm still a little confused about.
