Ding dong, the pitch is dead

Posted: March 21, 2011 in Mets

Oliver Perez is being paid to go away, and Mets fans couldn't be happier.

First, it was the powerless and rangeless Luis Castillo. Today, Mets fans got their true wish when the team released ineffective and overpaid Oliver Perez. Sure, the team is now paying $18 million this year to a pair of players who will play elsewhere or not at all, but it’s better than them playing for the Mets. They’re that bad. At least Castillo can take a walk (his only skill now), Ollie can’t do anything right. And I’m glad Sandy Alderson is putting his stamp on the team by ridding the organization of foul remnants from the Omar Minaya regime. Don’t expect the team to contend this year (although I believe they’ll be better than most people think), but at least they’re taking steps in the right direction.
