08:16 AM ET 03.16 | Perhaps Joe Blanton could be flipped for some infield depth. [Blanton] is one of the most popular guys in Florida these days. Not because he's a nice guy. (He really is.) Because he's a pitcher who could be had in a trade and those guys always get a lot of attention at this time of year. The usual gaggle of scouts smeared on sun block and gathered in the box seats behind the backstop to watch the Phillies' righthander make his third start of the spring Thursday. They were joined quite noticeably by newcomers from Boston and Baltimore. The Red Sox are one of the clubs looking to add a veteran arm and the Orioles might be on that list, too.
