May 15, 2009 I am sorry but this guy has not been that good this year. He has been OK, but he doesn't look like closer material to me and I am not so sure the 8th inning is so safe with him on the mound. Plus, the chin beard has got to go. What's with chin hair and no stache?
May 18, 2009 He says he has lost 3 miles off his fast ball because he can't get up for pitching in the 8th inning. Give me a break. Stop with the excuses. If you can't get excited about pitching any inning be it the 8th, 9th or 2nd, you don't deserve to get a major league check. How these guys need to be motivated and take for granted all the money they get is beyond me. Be a team player and stop making excuses. You haven't pitched that well and don't blame on the inning you are pitching in. Last week they were giving K-rod a day off and the Mets turned a 1 run 9th inning lead to a 4 run lead meaning Putz came into the game in a non save situation. He was probably the only guy on the bench rooting against the Mets scoring that 4th run. What a Putz.
May 21, 2009 So far, this guy Putz is a PUTZ! That being the Yiddish word....what nonsense.
December 13, 2009 A friend of mine has this saying: "The guy is robbing somebody WITHOUT a gun." J.J. Putz just committed that particular non-violent crime by taking money from the Shoeless Joe Jackson/Bill Veeck South Siders. Could be interesting when he goes toe to toe with that Hugo Chavez loving lunatic/manager and when AJ the catcher decides to smash him with a chair if he blows a lead at Comiskey.
June 16, 2010 We got damaged goods, Putz was hurt when the Mets got him
March 3, 2012 He gave someone (I don't remember who) a pie in the face during a spring training interview. Sometime afterwords, his arm fell off.
