More on Blanton’s Jon Heyman has chimed in, suggesting there are four teams – Reds, Red Sox, Yankees and Dodgers – who have talked to Oakland about Joe Blanton.

He says the Dodgers “have long been interested in Blanton and are well-stocked with prospects …” the Red Sox “also make sense after recently receiving the news about Curt Schilling’s shoulder …” and the Yankees “probably aren’t a serious player for Blanton.”

And he points out that the Enquirer reported that the A’s requested a three-package prospect including one of two pitchers – Homer Bailey or Johnny Cueto – plus first baseman Joey Votto for Blanton.
