If you were hoping to get an improved and rejuvenated Oliver Perez back in the starting rotation anytime soon, forget about it. Perez is now losing games for Buffalo these days, and in his first start with them he looked like the same old Ollie. The Buffalo News reports, Perez, in his first game action […]

Addition By Subtraction: The Oliver Perez Dilemma

An article by posted on May 13, 2009 0 Comments

What a difference a week and a half can make. Just ten days ago, we were all throwing stones, pointing fingers and placing blame. Omar should be fired. Wright should be traded. Delgado should be benched. Reyes should stop smiling so much. Things seemingly have changed almost overnight. The same team that was 10-13 and […]

Last week I wrote about Oliver Perez and the decision of Omar Minaya and the Mets to send him into the bullpen.  The next day the Mets decided to put Ollie on the disabled list (DL).  The reason provided by the Mets was that after an MRI it was determined that Ollie was suffering patella […]

Many of us are still feeling good after watching Jonathon Niese make his season debut and deliver a top notch performance, beating the Pirates and giving us something to get excited about. I don’t know what prompted the Mets to make the last minute switch and replace Ken Takahashi with Niese for that start, but […]

Beleaguered Mets starter Oliver Perez will have time to sort out his 9.97 ERA, as the Mets have officially put him on the 15 day disabled list retroactive to May 3rd.

One of the main reasons why the Mets ultimately passed on starting pitcher Derek Lowe this off season, was because of his age. You see, the Mets were only willing to give him three years and Lowe was looking for a fourth year which the Atlanta Braves were willing to give him. At 36-years old, […]

Yesterday the Mets finally did something about Oliver Perez.  They did not send him to the minors, nor did they put him on the disabled list after Ollie announced Sunday that his knee has been “injured” since the start of the season.  Instead Fred Wilpon and Omar Minaya flew down to Atlanta and decided along […]

Oliver Perez Is Mets New $36 Million Dollar LOOGY

An article by posted on May 4, 2009 0 Comments

In a surprising but predictable Mets fashion, Oliver Perez will go to the bullpen to work out his problems. It’s a terrible move for everyone involved because in effect the Mets are now working with a 24 man roster until Perez can get his act together. It would have been better to send Perez to […]
