According to Adam Rubin of ESPN New York, to resolve the impending roster issue with Jonathon Niese being activated on Saturday, the Mets are considering putting Oliver Perez on the DL with a knee injury
-Ill be the first to admit I dont like this guy(oliver)…at all. Ive never seen such a display of selfishness at this level before. Now the Mets are going to send him to the DL with a “knee injury”…coincidentally when Niese just happens to be activated from the DL. I dont know how the Mets keep finding ways to mess the most common sense things up but you cannot blame fans for being cynical. Oliver Perez is fine in my opinion and if his knee really was an “issue”, why wasnt he placed on the DL earlier?? Its not like he has been doing much of ANYTHING in the bullpen, how did he suddenly have a “knee injury”? Im so sick and tired of this crap, you have a pitcher making $11,400,000 less than Oliver Perez and doing MUCH better. I dont know who “really” is in charge of decisions on the Mets right now but they need to be fired. No way should a player literally hold a team hostage.
Also in Rubin’s article, Hanley Ramirez loves playing at Citifield:
â€œThey boo their own players, so we like to come here and beat the Mets,â€ Ramirez told the Palm Beach Post. â€œWe just laugh every time they boo their own players. Itâ€™s weird.â€
-Maybe because no one goes to Marlin games that actually HEARING fans in the stands sounds “weird”. Just focus on getting out the box and running things out…
Update: According to a tweet from Kevin Burkhardt, Mets officially put Oliver Perez on the DL with knee tendinitis to make room for Jonathon Niese
