Oliver Perez, tonight’s starter against Boston, carries a reputation of being hot and cold into the fourth slot in the rotation. I never know what to expect from this guy. One day he’s lights out; another day he couldn’t find the plate with a map.
Personally, my confidence level is rather low on him. He might be better off as the fifth starter if they can plug in somebody with more consistency ahead of him. If Mike Pelfrey makes the rotation, with the off days in early Aprily, as of now I’d rather give him the ball.
Your thoughts? What’s your confidence level on Perez?
