Contract Wars And The Perez Problem
“Perez is playing by the rules, no one is saying he isn’t. He doesn’t have to go to the minors if he doesn’t want to. But there is always the spirit of the law and the letter of the law. The spirit of the law, even when a player has the hammer, ought to be this:
The best way to honor your contract is by doing what’s best for your team, even if you don’t like it.
This happens to be the best thing for Perez, too. He can’t see that and won’t go to the minors. Somebody needs to explain to him you can’t be a big leaguer acting this small. Same goes for his agent.”
