GM Omar Minaya said before the game that lefty Oliver Perez could still make the playoff roster, but really, he’s got to say things like that. He’s not going to single out anybody now. Even so, Perez hasn’t done anything to help his cause so far tonight.
Now, about Cliff Floyd. He said his left Achilles is still sore, and he didn’t go back well on Wes Helms’ two-run double off the wall. Defense is even more important in the playoffs and Floyd could be a liability. Willie Randolph might think twice in some match-ups whether he is better off with Endy Chavez’s glove or Floyd’s bat.
