Lets face it the Mets offense was no where to be found in yesterdays putrid 2-1 loss to the Pittsburgh Pirates, essentially wasting yet another strong start for Johan Santana.While the Mets bats were awol yesterday it made me wonder why couldn't Ollie Perez be too? So I was wondering if the Mets ever cut " The Sultan Of Suckitude" what line of work would he be suitable for .So here it is , The top 10 jobs that Oliver Perez would be born to do .
10. Millitary Intellegence
.09. Morning drive disc jockey for WFAN ( face it if Craig Carton can do it why not our hunk of dead weight).
08. Alpaca inseminator.
07. Omar Minaya's assistant G.M.
06. The new moron at the "Shoot the Freak" attraction at Coney Island.
05. Crash Test Dummy
04. Frankie Rodriguez's sparring partner.03.Hat rack02. Jeff Wilpon's personal food taster.
