    I don’t want to be negative here, but isn’t it a bit strange how Blanton is hurt all of a sudden? If I remember correctly, didn’t the Mets explode at the plate against Blanton during his first start of this season? I don’t want to speculate, but something smellls fishy here. Maybe he is hurt and if that is the case, then get well soon!
