Brad Lidge threw on flat ground today and said he feels good; he will throw a bullpen session tomorrow. Looks like the Phillies have averted something serious with Lidge’s elbow.

    What does anyone think of the idea of trading Joe Blanton to Arizona for Kelly Johnson?
    Arizona is starved for pitching, shown by sending Ian Kennedy out as their #1.

    I like this outside-the-box thinking, but I think Arizona would laugh, and then hang up..

    Johnson is 29, and just recently got the chance to show what he can do with everyday playing time… Arizona has Daniel Hudson and Ian Kennedy …along with Saunders, gives them 3 ok pitchers … Blanton making $8 M and playing in 35 games doesn’t give them anything..

    But Johnson playing everyday, for $5.85 M … playing 2nd, and probably batting 2nd, has more value

    Arizona knows they are a year or two away from true contention.. with some more experience Hudson (who is legit already) and Kennedy will give them a nice 1-2 . . . and then a guy like Blanton could be a difference maker to give them real depth in the rotation, but for now – when they have no chance at the postseason, they have no need for Blanton
