The White Sox sign J.J. Putz

Dec 11, 2009, 1:39 PM EDT

Paul Sullivan of the Tribune tweets that the Sox and Putz have reached a one-year deal (Update: it’s for $3 million; Update #2: Another $3 million in games-finished incentives too).  Putz was an elite closer a couple of years ago but declined big in 2008 and even bigger in 2009, ending the season with a tear in his UCL — which I thought was some sort of mixed martial arts league until I Googled it — back in August.

If he can show he’s healthy and regains at least part of his form from a couple of years ago it will likely inspire Bobby Jenks to start going to Curves in the afternoons before games.

    I apologize to comedy everywhere but I laughed out loud at the Curves joke.
    The image. Hot diggity.

    I laughed too. And I clicked on the comments just to tell Craig I laughed.
    Well done, sir.
