Sox Working On Blanton Deal?

In the wake of Philadelphia swooping in on Cliff Lee, reports have surfaced that they are talking with the Red Sox about a deal that would send their current 5th starter, Joe Blanton, to the Sox. While the deal is not imminent (as was reported earlier this morning), this may be another way of tweaking the Yankees. Clearly, New York has to look for "salary dump" deals like Blanton and Zambrano to avoid shedding top prospects. The Red Sox poking around in one of those has got to gall them no end. Nice going, Theo.
