I thoought he would sign up for more than a year.
Still has arm issues I wouldnt think anyone would offer him more then a one year try-out
interesting, if true
Great, another guy KW gets two or three years too late.
putz is a good reclamation project
If it keeps thorton happy and productive, who cares!
I have no problem with this. One year, maybe allows them to move Jenks, etc. Keeps Pena away from the righty set-up role if nothing else.
I think he'll be real good. Gives us three options now to close.
That link says though that they might non-tender DJ Carasco. How in the hell does that make sense? He was one of the most solid guys out of the pen
I think this is a great risk/reward move. If they can get him healthy the reward is thru the roof
They might. They haven't yet. Don't get your panties in a bunch until they do. h

I also read the Red Sox are going to non tender BA.
I like this signing. Time will tell if he's effective, but at least he's a veteran that has a closer's mentality.
Whatever. I realize the potential upside, so I'll acknowledge that, but I can see myself looking back on this post in July and vomiting.
So you're noncomittal on this move. Damn, you could be the world's largest pussy.
I can't wait for the first game where Ozzie has to go to the mound to "pull Putz."
what are you, yiddish?
Putz can also make another 3.25 million in incentives. Makes you wonder what they have in store for him.
Jenks has to be moved, and if the Yankees want him for Gardner, go for it.
Considering the Braves got a reliever for Soriano, I wonder if that's just about what they could get for Jenks. Clearly the Jenks for Upton thoughts were pipe dreams.
I was happy about the Mackowiak move as well as getting Betemit. I had no idea Betemit was the worst defender in baseball history. I just thought he could hit.
Relievers are incredibly unpredictable. Even Thornton might suck. That's just how it goes.
The curse of BA shall make the Curse of the Bambino appear to be but the mildest of damnations.
Just got the email from the SOX. Gotta be official.
I'll still wait for tomorrow's newspaper.
I like it. Putz is solid when healthy. It's well worth the risk.
I've got a good feeling about this move.
UNDER THE RADAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!11!!!
he was insanely good in 2007 (!!!!!!!!!!!!111)
The 3.25 mil in incentives are:
250K for appearances and 3 million in games finished.
So he's rooting for a Jenks trade.
Is this 3 million in incentives or just staight 3 million? Everything I read makes it sound like its 3 million
3 mil base.
Grain of salt with Kenny Williams, but Cowley tweets:
aka trade Jenks to acquire an outfielder
With Jeff Cox at third, all we need is Dick Pole and Pete LaCock and we've got the All Penis Team.
throw rusty kuntz in there just so all those fellas have someone to keep them honest
That shithead needs to play uninterrupted CF for some garbage NL team because no team trying to compete is going to give him any actual playing time.
but seriously, how does jeans so extemperaneously know all the baseball players in the world with penis names
It's a hobby of mine that I've had since childhood.
jeans i'm still waiting for my yankees shit.........
You won't give me your mailing address because you know I'll send you sexy magazines.
Where does Johnny Dickshot fit into this equation?
He died about 10 years ago. Maybe they can retire his number or something.
He'll always be alive in my heart.
What's cool is that he gave himself the nickname "ugly" in hopes of distracting people away from his last name.
Ugly Dickshot. That's a player-named video game moniker if I've ever heard one.
