Dear NY Met Beat Guys/Gals,
For all you media types that make a living following and reporting on the Mets day to day. As a Mets fan I have read many stories regarding Oliver Perez lately and far be it from me to tell you how to do your job but of all the questions I see asked there is one question that for the life of me I don’t understand why it has yet to be asked. So I will put it out there and hope someone with more influence than I can somehow find that one person in the media that will step up and ask the following question.
(This question is for Jerry Manuel, Omar Minaya and Jeff Wilpon)
1. How do you justify having Oliver Perez earning $12M this season on the 25 man roster since July 21st and only having used him all of 3 times for a total of 4.1 innings the latest outing coming August 1st and on top of that still say you are trying to win games with what basically is a 24 man roster?
I apologize if this question has already been asked and I would appreciate being pointed to where I can read the reply because I am just dying to know the answer to this question.
