Meet Joe Blanton
The forgotten member of the starting staff by the media has a lifetime .641 winning percentage as a Phillie (25-14 in 73 games). Joe Blanton is a great asset as a 5th starter, and a beloved member of the team. He's durable and relatively consistent. He's built to last standing 6'3" and tipping the scales at 245 pounds (that's after a 2 day fast and sauna session). However, he gets poked at more than the Pillsbury Doughboy because of his *chubbiness*. Tonight he looks to get the Phils back to their winning ways against the Mets. So don't disrespect on GI Joe, or he'll be gunning for you.
* = I could pass as homeboy's twin if I grew a goatee, seeing as I'm nearly the same size and build as Heavy B.
