Rich H dropped this in the comments section and I thought I'd put it up here.  While Blackburn isn't 6'8" (he's 6'2") it is an interesting piece:

Nice, glad to see he didn't waste his offseason.  Hope he continues to grow and improve, we can use all of the pitching prospects that we can get.

He's always had three good pitches to work with, so his good outings should come as no surprise.

I always crack up whenever I hear somebody is "only 6'2" because I am 6'4 and let me tell you I suck at hide and go seek and flying coach comfortably

Guy I used to hang with is 6'9". One day at the Wrigley troughs he feels something hitting him in the leg. Wound up being a little kid staring up at him while he was still peeing--my buddy was getting pee'd on by some kid who was dumb struck by his height.
