Mets Land (Whadda) Putz

Last night, the Mets landed a set-up guy for K-Rod, pulling off a three-team deal with the Mariners and Indians to bring JJ Putz to Queens.  That’s a heck of a bullpen tandem, with Putz an excellent closer going to set up for K-Rod.  A big improvement in an enormous problem area for the Mets, who gave up outfielder Endy Chavez, pitcher Aaron Heilman, and three minor leaguers for Putz, reliever Sean Green, and outfielder Jeremy Reed.

  1. Unfortunately for Putz, he is probably better than KROD assuming he returns to form after the injury.

  2. well joe then we’ll see whether jerry manuel has the guts to switch their roles. i’m betting he does- i have a lot of respect for that guy. i don’t know if you guys would consider this a problem, but most teams in the NL east particularly hate the mets for their showboating. it’s only going to get MUCH worse with r-rod
