The other team involved in the A.J. Burnett talks was the Philadelphia Phillies. Obviously would've had to clear Blanton to make it work.

What the hell is this?

Somehow, that phrase "they would have had to clear Blanton" reminds me of one of those pig-in-a-python scenarios.

A much less stressful situation for him. Pittsburgh is happy if you win just a few games for them.
