Met's manager, Jerry Manuel said this to the press after the press conference where K-Rod was introduced as a Met:
"I do think that if we are to be where we expect to be, we'll have to have more than one guy save games."
He went on to say that Putz would be available when K-Rod had been over used, but also said the following:
[K-Rod] doesn't have to save, say, 75 games. The other guy [Putz] can save 35, whatever. That's big for us."
Anyone think that K-Rod's feathers will get ruffled a bit if this becomes a situation where there isn't a set-in-stone closer and Putz blows a save when K-Rod is totally healthy?
Anyway, I immediately thought this was a stupid thing to SAY publicly, but probably a pretty good idea in practice.
