J.J. Putz was born in Trenton, Michigan. There are not enough Jews in Trenton, Michigan for it to matter.
J.J. Putz used to pitch for the Seattle Mariners. There are a few more Jews in Seattle, but still not enough.
Now, J.J. Putz has been traded to the New York Mets. Here, even the Chinese know some Yiddish words.
Especially THAT one.
Poor, poor J.J. Putz.
