It has gotten so bad, the Mets are looking for Oliver Perez as their savior tonight. The same Oliver Perez who is coming off a knee injury and still walked the ballpark during his minor-league stint in Buffalo.
If he gets shelled tonight, and what rational Mets fan doesn’t fully expect that to happen, this could be Omar Minaya’s lowest hour as Mets GM. His $36 Million dollar headcase…essentially reduced to a waste of a roster spot. The boos could get louder tonight than you’ve heard them in many years.
