The Tribune reports that “multiple National League sources” are saying that the Diamondbacks are interested in White Sox’ setup man J.J. Putz.
This is silly. No, not the Dbacks’ interest in Putz — he’s good and could help their crappy bullpen — but the notion of “National League sources.” The league offices were abolished years ago, and even the umpires now work for Major League Baseball, not a league. Clearly the sources were transferred to MLB too, weren’t they? Or are holed up in a small strip mall office with Bill White or Leonard Coleman someplace, thinking that it’s the mid-90s?
Oh well. As for Putz, I’d be rather surprised if — Arizona’s interest notwithstanding — the White Sox didn’t make a run at trying to keep him. Bobby Jenks is almost certainly going to be non-tendered, and the Sox are going to need a closer. Obviously, of course, the ultimate decision is up to Mr. Putz.
