“There’s no doubt that Kenny has interest in him,” Thornton said on Tuesday. “[Putz] has been asking me what I think about it, what I think about the Sox. I told him we expect to win. I tell that to anyone that asks me, we expect to win. We prepare to win and if we don’t win, well, we’re pissed. I told [Putz] that if you’re a free agent you want to go to a winner.”
Thornton and Putz have been good buddies since early on in their Seattle days.
“We’ve known each other for over a decade,” Thornton said laughing. “It’s a bromance.”
Thornon also has some comments on the Jenks situation.
