Rays interested in Joe Blanton?

Tim Dierkes of mlbtraderumors.com is reporting that the Reds, Twins and Rays are all possible destinations for Oakland A's RHP Joe Blanton, should the A's choose to trade him. How great would a front four of Kazmir, Shields, Garza and Blanton look? I'd be interested to see what the A's would want in return for Blanton. Would the Rays part with one of their own prized young pitchers in return for a little older but more proven Blanton?
