Mets Fans Aren't the Only Ones Who Want Ollie Out...

The Mets asked Oliver Perez to consider going down to Triple-A again, and again, Oliver refused.  Way to help the team Ollie...

In an article early this morning for The New York Post, Mike Puma, anonymously quotes some of the Mets about the Oliver Perez situation...and the reactions seem to be the same: dump him.

In what is an extremely telling article, Puma quotes one Mets player as saying, "“You tell him you go to Triple-A or that’s it, you are finished."  Then Puma goes on to quote ANOTHER Mets player as saying, "At some point you have to cut bait...You owe him a lot of money, but for what?"

Later in the article Puma talks about when Manuel would use Perez, and he basically says only in extra innings.  That's a problem.  What's the point of keeping a guy on the team if he's basically a wasted roster spot?  Puma has another quote from a Mets player, in response to Manuel's plan on when to use Perez: "What, we need another 20-inning game and then use him after we’ve used all our pitchers and if a position player’s sinker isn’t biting?”  Yikes.
