Last week’s poll question was: If Oliver Perez or Livan Hernandez were sent down, which pitcher would you bring up to replace them?
Here are the results:
Nelson Figueroa: 15%
Jonathon Niese: 27%
A healthy Tim Redding: 22%
Go out and get someone else: 37%
It looks like the majority of you chose to go out and get someone else to replace Oliver Perez, who had another miserable outing on Saturday. Pedro Martinez anyone?
The Mets now have a real dilemma on their hands, trying to figure out what to do with Perez. Will he accept a demotion to the Minors or will the Mets reassign him to the bullpen? Thanks to the rain-out yesterday in Philadelphia, the Mets won’t have to make a decision yet. Now there is talk of maybe putting Perez on the disabled list due to a sore knee.
This week’s poll question is: If you were the Mets’ manager and you could do whatever you wanted with Oliver Perez, what would you do?
