    That's one of the least reputable sources I've ever seen in my life... I'm gonna move this into the offseason thread. Oh and..MY GOD PLEASE NO!

    The guy is terrible. I'm praying it isn't true. He's just horrible.

    Sources confirm #Angels are nearing a deal for starting pitcher Joe Blanton
    Still a little unclear, but I'm told Blanton would be "a piece" to the rotation, not necessarily the *final* piece. But details still foggy.
    I'm told Joe Blanton to the #Angels is not a done deal. If they do get him, unlikely he'd end pursuit of higher-end pitchers.
    Remember, the #Angels still have G.Richards in No. 5 spot, so a Blanton-type might just compete w/ him.
    If this is anything more than a depth move I'm scared

    Hmmm the Blanton signing I think is for us to have him as our #5 starter and then maybe the question is that if Richards in now a trade chip or being sent to AAA. Because they technically could still sign Grienke or trade for Shields.

    Industry source on the #Angels' pursuits of Greinke, Anibal, Jackson, etc.: "We are still here."
    If this is a depth move I like it. Blanton should only be 6th or 7th on our depth chart

    Oh no...

    blanton gets 2 yrs, $15M
    Hate it

    No @JonHeymanCBS reporting that Joe Blanton getting two-year, $15-million deal from #Angels. That would seem to take them out on other SPs.

    Angels Close to Signing Joe Blanton

    Please let this be a one year deal.

    Please let this be a depth move.

    Please don't do this Dipoto if its neither of the two.
