Putz

May 2 Putz, who blew a 2-1, 10th-inning lead Thursday on two walks and two hits, said he has no idea where is fastball is going and likely will pitch in mop-up situations to improve command, the Seattle Times reports.
Recommendation: Putz hasn't been demoted and is still the closer, though in a dual role he won't be available for all save situations. "I just don't have a feel for (the fastball)," he said. "I don't know if it's just being rusty or whatever, but my rhythm's not there and nothing feels like it's in sync." Putz has allowed three runs in four save situations this season after allowing seven runs in 42 save chances last season. His two blown saves equal the number he had last year. Putz would really have to stink to lose his closer job. The Mariners, as they found out when Putz was injured, don't really have a more reliable option.
"I'm the man with the ball. I'm the man who can throw it faster than F***. So that's why I'm better than anyone in the world." - Kenny Powers

he's healthy, just needs more work to get his control in order... he came back into the role with NO rehab appearances.... he's going to have some of these until he's back into game shape
For every Brett Myers there's a Nate McLouth...
