Thursday Links: Trade Winds Blow

Joe Blanton

The MLB trade season is officially in full gear with three major moves Wednesday.  We told you about the Mariners/Pirates deal that sent Hardin County native Nathan Adcock to Pittsburgh, but the biggest trade of the day may also have Kentucky implications.  The Phillies received reigning AL Cy Young winner Cliff Lee for four prospects.  With Lee and Pedro Martinez joining the Philadelphia rotation, two pitchers must move to the pen and one candidate is UK alum Joe Blanton.  Blanton leads the team in innings, has a 4.11 ERA and has a history of good second halves so hopefully his spot is safe.
