Lost in the excitement of the Oliver Perez signing, is a very underreported yet very interesting fact. Most of us agree that the Mets overpaid to get the Oliver Perez deal done. It was a move I certainly won’t argue with. But, now that the dust has settled, it’s become apparent to me that we just gave Oliver Perez the same exact deal we gave to one of the top closers in baseball, Frankie Rodriguez. […]
Last week, I posted a blog on how Joe Torre took a cheap shot at Mike Piazza, based on an excerpt from his book that appeared in the New York Post. Today, Ben Shpigel of the NY Times, reports on yet another swipe Joe Torre takes at a Mets player; Carlos Beltran. Scott Boras, Beltran’s agent, gave the Yankees one final shot at signing him and snatching him from the Mets’ grasp by proposing a six-year, $100 million […]
Wow, Matt Cerrone did an excellent job of live blogging the Oliver Perez press conference. It felt like you were actually there in the way he delivered his content.

Here is a recap of Mets moves that will keep you in the know. Mets Hot Stove Recap Only 13 days until pitchers and catchers report. The Mets went into the off season with […]
Last week I wrote that I had a hunch that if Oliver Perez was going to sign with the Mets, it would happen by this weekend. I still feel that way, but I’m a little skeptical about whether Oliver Perez wants to play for the Mets in the first place. He has said nothing about having a desire to return to the Mets in all this time. What is he waiting for to take the […]
