Joe Blanton Had to Be Separated from His Pitching Coach Yesterday

Kyle Scott - July 15, 2013

Things aren’t going well for Fat Joe in the City of Angels. He’s 2-12  with a 5.53 ERA and a bloated 1.54 WHIP. Yesterday, he and his pitching coach, Mike Butcher, got into it after Blanton had a “miscommunication” with his catcher (he had wanted the powdered jellies but instead got sugar covered).

Video of Blanton throwing a tantrum is after the jump.

    That fat fucking pig joe was probably trying to eat him a la Newman biting Kramer

    Actually Fat Joe lost a ton of weight, but based on the way he’s pitching this year, perhaps he should have kept the weight on.
    I’ll always remember him for the home run he hit in the 2008 World Series.

      Couldn’t have happened to a better person? I’m trying hard to understand your rationale for hating on a guy who came to the Phillies mid season in 08, went 4-0 for the rest of the season, and then went 2-0 in the playoffs and even hit a home run in the world series. Yeah, that is so deserving of hate. Jackass!

      Or in the time you did that you could just click a random answer and they go away.

    And of course, just like every infant with an impulse control problem, Fat Joe took out his frustrations on the defenseless Gatorade cooler. How original.

  • FACE July 15, 2013 at 2:15 pm

    LOL…poor Fat Joe…

  • Andy Schreiber July 15, 2013 at 3:13 pm

    Feel bad for the guy.

    Without Joe Blanton, our Phils don’t win the Series in 2008. They probably don’t even make the playoffs.
