It must be really hard to be Oliver Perez these days. It’s no secret that the majority of the fanbase would have preferred that Perez had been released long before the reporting date for pitchers and catchers, and I bet after seeing the atrocious numbers Perez put up at Winter Ball, the thought may have crossed the […]

Oliver Perez is no stranger to days off.  As we all know, the Mets would not use Oliver Perez out of the bullpen a lot during the season, thus giving him plenty of time off to ponder his predicament.   It appears the Los Tomateros de Culiacan are taking the same approach with Oliver Perez, as the Amazin’s […]
