A pregame interview with Joe Blanton
Philles Game 4 starter talks about the mindset of pitching
It's obviously been a couple very unfortunate incidents happen for members of the Phillies this week. How is that affecting the team, if at all?JOE BLANTON: I think it's one of those things you really grieve for the person off the field. But at the same time, it's almost like baseball is that getaway. You have that nine-inning period where you really get to break away from everything and focus on one thing. And just through personal experience, I know it can almost be a getaway, and you almost put extra focus into the game.
