The Giants have wrapped up the 2007 NL West title and a likely spot in the World Series by signing free agent pitcher Russ Ortiz to a one-year contract for the major league minimum of $380,000. Arizona is still paying off the rest of Ortiz's salary, $8.5 million.
According to the AP story linked above, Leo Mazzone told Ortiz that he had a problem in the way he took the ball out of his glove.
"Russ, when you take the ball out of your glove, throw it TOWARD home plate. HARD!"
