Oliver Perez was on his game this afternoon, showing us how good he could be. Perez gave up one run on two hits in five innings in easily his best start of the spring.
That’s two good starts in a row for Perez.
I think the problem with Perez and the expectations is that his stuff is so good, and he shows us these glimpses, that when he doesn’t pitch lights out we’re either disappointed or frustrated.
I’d like to say, pencil him in for 17, but the flip side of that are the 10 to 12 games he might lose and how he’ll lose them.
