And yes, you read that headline correctly: hapless Seattle reliever J.J. Putz gave up his second game-losing grand slam of the week.
Putz via AP, on how this pitch to Bernie Williams differed from the one he threw to Trot Nixon on Saturday: “He described the pitch to Williams as nearly identical, except slightly off the plate. Nixon’s was over the middle.”
And yes, I did spit when I typed the name of the hated Boston right-fielder (it’s so hard not sing the “horse’s ass” song sometimes…)
