Following today's "performance" in which he gave up back-to back homers to Jeff Frazier and Brian Bixler...yes that Frazoer and that Bixler ..WHO??? Mets management has no choice but to release Oliver Perez..
In seven Grapefruit League outings -- two as a starter -- Perez has posted an 8.38 ERA with six strikeouts, eight walks and 13 hits in 9 2/3 innings (numbers strikingly similar to those produced in the Mexican Winter League). His fastball velocity on Saturday never climbed higher than 87 mph, also typical of his recent work.
Despite the confidence Perez showed in his post 2/3 of an inning outing.
"People can say a lot of stuff," Perez said. "I did everything I can. It's one of those days. You're going to have really bad days. I know I don't want to have a really bad day, but I think it's one of those days. I just have to come here tomorrow and try to get better.", The Mets have no choice but to bite the bullet and release the lost lefty.
Enough is ENOUGH!!!!
LET'S GO METS !!!
