2006 Topps Opening Day #117 Pat Burrell
and since as far as I know Joe Blanton doesn't have a Phillies card available yet I bring you this good guy Photo of Mr. Blanton signing autographs prior to a game earlier this season.
Nice Outing for Blanton. It is odd to think that the Phils made a minor move to get Blanton to patch a hole in their troubled rotation and today he advances in the playoffs while both CC and Rich Harden end up going home.
I am also happy to see Pat Burrell come through in a big game. He has struggled during the second half and his long tenure as a Phil may come to an end following 2008. Hopefully Pat and the Phils can extend the 08 season deep into October.
