The best part of the early morning release of Oliver Perez is not just the fact that the ineffective pitcher is mercifully gone but what has to have the Mets fan base giddy on this rainy cold morning is Sandy Alderson is running the baseball operations of the NY Mets. He is the man calling the shots; he put Baby Jeffy in the corner.

For all the gloom and doom financial news about the Skill Sets, the head baseball man in charge went to them and said time to eat $18 mil in contract, and all the Skill Sets could do is stand at attention and say “Sir, yes sir” You can debate that this should have been done before spring training or earlier but the bottom line is the Faces of Failure of the Minaya regime are gone.

With the Phuck Phaces signing Luis Castillo to a minor league deal as insurance in case Chase Utley will not make it to opening day and beyond tells me the Phuck Phace’s may not be the lead pipe cinch to win the NL Pennant most thought they were this winter.

Adam Rubin has a great Ollie Perez retrospective. It wasn’t  always days of suckitude with OP but his Mets career did end badly for all sides.

The feel good story of spring, the return of Izzy, has his a bump as Isringhausen is taking anti-inflamitories  for his surgically repaired elbow

  1. That Alderson is biting the bullet on Castillo and Perez in light of the financial woes of the team speaks highly of him. Agreed, he should have done this sooner. But at least he did it. Now Mets fans can move on and things will get better.

  2. No sobbing from me. For the first time in many years I’ve got pretty much everything I (realistically, in my opinion) wanted from the Mets in between regular seasons: a new GM; a new field manager; Ollie Perez gone; Luis Castillo gone.

  3. Its snowing up here in Plattsburgh, but yes, this news makes me feel warm.

  4. Wow! Sandy is really REALLy in charge.Ollie will sign with St Louis, Duncan’s genius tag will attract him…belated anniversary wishes.Sesame place is more fun than AC anytime…

  5. Alderson saw what a hero he became just by releasing Castillo,he decided to become a Superhero !!!
    Addition through subtraction…

    METS – (Castillo/Perez)= Better Team
    Best moves in team history!!!

    Hey Steve, it makes sense that you were married in ’86 !!!Watershed year, huh? Congrats !!!
