The Astros are interested in J.J. Putz

Following up on the Brett Myers stuff from this morning, the Astros are reportedly interested in J.J. Putz as well, says’s Brian McTaggart.  I guess if they get them both the team would have two putzes.

As Matthew said in his free agency preview, Putz has slid down the slope in the past three years, going from a 1.38 ERA in 71 2/3 innings in 2007 to a 3.88 ERA
in 46 1/3 innings in 2008 to a 5.22 ERA in 29 1/3 innings last season, with an UCL tear in his elbow last year as the cherry on top.

    I am pretty sure Ed Wade would be thrilled to construct a 25 man roster of entirely relief pitchers.

    Dear Buddha, I cringe at the thought of going through life with a name like that. It’s probably about the only way you’d want to be the sole Jewish kid going to junior high school in a small town in Appalachia. You might still get the coprolite beaten out of you on the playground, but at least no one would know enough to make fun of your name.
