Maybe Oliver Perez is just an easy target, I don’t know. But the Mets lost tonight and have Perez going tomorrow. Assume for a moment this is a three-game playoff series. Down a game, with Perez pitching. What’s your confidence level?
Might isn’t high. To me he’s still a flip-of-the-coin guy. I have confidence in Glavine, Hernandez and Maine … I’m still concerned with Perez and Pelfrey on the back end. To me, this is the essence of the Mets this year: What will get from their fourth and fifth starters?
