Ya Putz!

I don't mean to pick on Putz, who has done a generally okay job this year, but 4 homers in 6 appearances is a bit much.

Presently, you would be better off bringing Norm Charlton out of retirement than letting JJ face a lefty. They're slugging 681 (in a pretty small sample size). Its like he turns every lefty into Reds slugger Adam Dunn, only without the walks. Thats not so good. Last year it wasn't quite so bad, although he did give up 8 homers to lefties and only 2 to righties.

I don't know if that means that you make a him a right-handed specialist (or ROOGY, Right-handed One Out GuY) but I think it does mean you can't let him face a lefty in a spot where a homer can beat you or tie the game.
