You might be laughing at J.J. Putz's name again, even though it's pronounced "puts." You are six years old. What you should be laughing at is that Henry Blanco is still a) alive and b) playing baseball in the majors. A list of players born in the same year as Blanco:

Benny Agbayani
Bubba Trammell
Brian Hunter
Todd Van Poppel
Rey Ordonez
Wil Cordero
Marvin Benard
Pedro Martinez
