A pregame interview with Joe Blanton
Phillies Game 4 starter talks about facing the Rays
Prior to this year's playoffs, what was the biggest game you pitched in? And can you draw on that experience in any way for tomorrow night?JOE BLANTON: I threw in a playoff game in '06 but it was in relief against Detroit in the ALCS. But I think other than that it would probably be, as far as that goes, it would be this year, Opening Day in Japan with the A's. That's pretty big. A lot of people, a lot of media, being an overseas deal and just a different event rather than a regular season game.
