OLIVER PEREZ REFUSES TO TAKE ONE FOR THE TEAM

Who thinks Oliver Perez to the bullpen is a good plan? I didn’t think so. If you thought Aaron Heilman, Scott Schoeneweis , Armando Benitez  and Doug Sisk were the most hated relievers in Mets history OP could be jump to the number one spot on that list just not just for ineffectiveness but for his out right selfishness by not taking assignment to the minors.

 

I’d love to kill the Mets for not having the balls to ship OP’s sorry ass out to Buffalo but their hands are tied with OP having to give his ok for the demotion and it looked like he was ready to do so but Scott Bora$ got in his ear and OP revered course. Too bad.

 

OP can’t work on his problems out of the pen. J-Man won’t use him in a big spot so his days will be sitting idle in the pen eating licorice and sunflower seeds. At least in Buffalo he stays in the rotation and works with pitching coach Rickey Bones to get his mechanics straighten out.  Again, what will it take for OP to do the right thing, blowing a relief assignment and getting humiliated by the $iti Field crowd? It shouldn’t come to that.

  1. is it possible that he gets into one or two games, stinks up the joint, and then they force his hand when Tim Redding is ready to pitch in NY? they could always spin it publicly that it was their idea from the start and make OP and Bor-a$$ look like the bad guys.

    it’s also possible that he pitches well in long and/or short relief (just as well as most of the others have fared) when you consider the different standards we hold relievers up to, and all this goes away, and we have another lefty in the pen.
