The Term Putz is All Too Kind

February 1, 2010


In yet another ex-player’s excerpt regarding his experience with the Mets,

Who is the real Putz?

J.J. Putz reveals all in his interview with Comcast SportsNet Chicago.

I don’t believe that any of this will astonish any true Met fan here.  If the interview had not come out, would it have surprised anyone to learn that the Mets did not look into his medical condition prior to making the trade with the Seattle Mariners last season?  (Does anyone remember Victor Zambrano?) I would have assumed that the answer would have been a resounding “NO”, regardless of this news.

Hey, let me be honest here.  I am nothing if I am not honest.  When it comes to the Mets, they are nothing if they are not consistent.  However, this consistency always seems to be on the wrong side of competence, unfortunately.

Regardless, J.J. had nothing to prove in this interview.  He was just being honest.  He does not even have anything bad to say about his former team.  There is no sour-grapes Met bashing going on here, as opposed to countless others who seem to get off on ripping the Mets after they leave.

With no real motive behind his story, doesn’t it stand to reason that this interview only highlights the inept decision making that rules the Mets as an organization?  Will it ever change?  I do not see the Mets coming back with an explanation in regards to Mr. Putz.  Do you?

    You hit on a very good point here at the end though. And that’s the Met-bashing that goes on AFTER the player leaves. We’ve always thought it was sour grapes as you call it but the fact is, many players have left and said that disorganization IS the Mets organization. It’s sad that a team with as many resources as they and in NY have to be as incompetent-looking as the Mets are.

    Baseball is the most exciting game on the planet. I’m really looking forward to the new season. Should be a lot of fun.
