Omar Minaya’s legacy will most likely always be tied to Oliver Perez. Giving this guy $36 million dollars when nobody else was even bidding has become a running joke. It’s time for Omar to realize this was an abysmal failure and take his medicine. He will forever take a hit for this horrible signing, what he needs to do now, is try to salvage some respect by making the right move, ending the Ollie P era with the NY Mets.
I don’t ever want to see this bumb on the mound wearing blue and orange again. Enough is enough. You can talk about bullpen salvage projects, disabled list mystery injuries, or shipping him down to the minors. Call it whatever you want but this guy does not belong in the majors. If you’ve watched all his games like I have about the only value this guy has for the organization is as a batting practice pitcher.
What kind of message does it send the rest of the franchise? That we allow a guy to stink up the join every 5th day and he gets absolutely no repercussions whatsoever. He laughs his way to the bank and collects his check every payday. It’s time to send Ollie a clear message and to injure his vanity. I’d love to see the Mets outright release him with a message saying his performance was no acceptable and he no longer has a place with the team. We all know that wont happen so instead we need to ship him to the minors. Send this guy a wake up call. Let him know that he belongs in the minors. No more kid gloves with this guy. That’s his biggest problem, everyone baby’s him and I am sick of it.
For the good of the franchise moving forward, Oliver Perez needs to be removed from the equation one way or another.
