    What is this, everyone ganging up on the Yanks.

    Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports and Jon Heyman of SI.com are reporting the Phillies and Boston Red Sox are close to a deal that would send Joe Blanton to the Sox.

    LeBron is enjoying this ... immensely ... he hopes the war lasts through the NBA season.

    No thanks. This wouldn't improve the staff at all.

    Joe Blanton makes just as much money per year as Dice-K, but is a far worse pitcher. He had a 4.8 ERA and 1.4 WHIP, and doesn't win many games either. At least Dice-K knows how to win games even though he does it in the most maddening ways by never giving in to a hitter.

    And that's in the NL. Blanton would be a disaster for the Sox.

    In comparing to DiceK, Matsuzaka also has greater upside, imo.
