The Blanton Twins pull a Tia and Tamara
Posted by at 12:31 pm ET 24 Comments

Alright, so Joe Blanton doesn’t actually have a twin brother, and I didn’t actually make a ‘Sister, Sister’ reference (I did), but the Phillies actually spelled Joe Blanton’s first name wrong on the CBP videoboard before Sunday’s heartbreaker against the Maxi Pads:

CSN graphics guy, eat your heart out.

    Longest tag-ever.

  2. DP says:

    Maybe evil skinny John with his 1-4 record and 5.69ERA killed phat Joe.

  3. Tug Haines says:

    I like this one even better than when Pedro Feliz was a CBP Phanavision “Star of the Game” and they spelled his name Perdo Feliz.

  4. Bocephus says:

    When you’ve known him as long as I have, it’s John Daniels.

  5. yellowbird says:

    anyone notice during the homerun payoff inning, the person was from mount holly, nj but the graphics read from “mount molky”

  6. C. Lou says:

    Perhaps “John Blanton” is Joe Blanton’s less talented doppelganger? Maybe that would explain the high ERA, losses, and repeated flop sweat?

    Let this be a lesson to you all to always carefully read the comments above you so you don’t accidentally rip someone else off.

    *Hangs head in shame*

  8. DP says:

    C.Lou: Keep you’re head up. It was a good comment.

  9. So I guess the same people who do the typing for CSN do the work for CBP, too.

    more WB sitcom references please. Its the one thing this world lacks.

  11. Jupiter's Rings says:

    I don’t know, guys, isn’t the twin with the facial hair traditionally the evil one?

  12. Defenestrate Wheels says:

    Cole sometimes reminds me of Blossom. although i am unsure what network that was originally held. and you guessed it, Pat the Bat was Joey.

  13. DP says:

    Matt Stairs was the teacher from Head of the Class

  14. Amandah says:

    Meech, you could have wrote the opening to this post in a much funnier way than FTM did. Jussaying’…

    Predictive Text FTL.

  16. James Fayleez says:

    Joe Blanton doesn’t get his real name back until he figures out how to make it to the 7th inning with 3 runs or less. And stop with that PITCH TO CONTACT bullshit. He has no location. That’s why he’s a PITCH TO CONTACT pitcher. Or command. Or whatever the fucks he lacks.

    It’s lik saying a one-armed boxer is a southpaw style of fighter. of course he is. He HAS ONE FUCKING ARM.

    Actually again, I shouldn’t be mad at Sloppy Joe. He is what he is. Thanks Rube.

  17. Phan Stuck in nyc says:

    The brunette, with the brown eyes, is always the evil one.

  18. Phan Stuck in nyc says:

    Maybe the Phillies are only losing, leaving men on base, and going 1 – 4 & 0 – 4 in this alternate universe. Maybe they’re winning in the other one. Okay, I tried.

  19. Nothing like having a 5.68 ERA entering a game while weighing 568 LBS, eh John/Joe?

  20. SJ says:

    He’s no Kevin Kendrick.

  21. Phan Stuck in nyc says:

    Broad Street – But then do they really only weigh 284lbs ea? Ok I know, I’m pushing it.

  22. Fat Joe Blanton says:

    insert Tyler Walker joke here

  23. GMart says:

    Nice work, Melligator.

  24. jesus says:

    he is better than derrick jeter
