JJ Putz: K MACHINE???

Postby LouisC9999 » Sun Apr 16, 2006 1:11 pm

I saw 14 Ks in 7.1 innings and had to pick him up.

Who saw this coming?

Believe it or not, I drafted him.....but as a backup to Guardado, not for 2K/IP.

I expect him to be solid, but not to keep up this pace....

Considering he's at triple the k rate he's averaged in the majors and the minors, I don't suspect this will continue.

The only place where JJ Putz would deserve multiple threads is at the "Unfortunate Names Cafe". Stop the madness people. If you can't be bothered touse the search function, at least peruse the front page before posting.

You're acting as if two JJ Putz threads are going to crash the site. Chill out.

Unless you're a moderator. If that's the case, sorry, it won't happen again...

Some people like to pretend to be moderators (i.e. showing authority). I guess it makes them feel big. B-)

He won't keep it up but the numbers definitely make me wonder which way the Mariners will go if Guardado goes down. :-?

Guys at USSMariner.com pointed out that Putz has been pitching well since he started mixing up his pitches and extending his arm (if I remember correctly), after relying mostly on the not spectacular fastball in his first couple of outings. Wonder if he's doing anything different this season compared to the past, and if that's semi-permanent improvement that you can expect for the next few months? (Though, no one averages 2K/IP, so that's going down, but to where?)
