He's garbage. No chance he could be good for us like he was the last few years. :bang:

I don't remember Hanrahan being as consistently bad as Blanton has been this season

He blew at least 5 saves in the first couple weeks of 2009, I don't think I've ever seen a worse performance from a reliever than Gascanrahan that year.

Smart signing that has bombed early. Shockingly bad.

maybe he can retire and become a mechanic.  There's always demand for tradesmen in America.  Mike Rowe wants company.

Maybe he's better suited to be a mechanic.  Lot's of jobs out there for a good one.

Just what we need...a sub-1 WAR & 4.35 career ERA past his prime pitcher...

 :whistle:

That 4.35 ERA is lookin' mighty fine, considering he's sittin' at 10.13 now...

Old guy was up too late last night.    I saw Blanton and thought plankton.

Plankton (singular plankter) are the diverse collection of organisms that live in the water column of large bodies of water and are unable to swim against a current. They provide a crucial source of food to many large aquatic organisms, such as fish and whales.

This probably explains the confusion.

The only way he'll be fine is if he's off the 25 man roster...

I'm going to keep posting this. Maybe I could be right. People stuck with Danny for way longer than this. Hasn't been a month.

If Blanton were a shortstop he'd be Danny Espinosa without the power or the bazooka.

yeah, so obviously so...was a waste of a signing when they signed him, and now is a total waste of human skin.  please just dump this utter piece of sh*t...
