Coin Flip goes for the Mets tonight. He’s had three straight stinkers, so maybe he’s due. Willie Randolph chewed him out after his last start. Pedro Martinez has been talking with him this week, but admits talk is cheap and “it’s up to him to do it.’’
Perez isn’t a bad guy. He’s very sensitive. “I want to do well, believe me,’’ he told me after the Giants game.
The issue isn’t me believing Perez wants to do well, but whether Perez believes he can do well.
