Quote of the Day: May 31, 2010

In an earlier post, I outlined some of the possibilities surrounding the future of Oliver Perez. Mike Puma of the NY Post reports that several Mets players want Ollie gone asap. One of the unnamed players had a great line about how the Mets might use Ollie if he stays in the bullpen:

“What, we need another 20-inning game and then use him after we’ve used all our pitchers and if a position player’s sinker isn’t biting?” the player said.

    Just sign Vince Coleman to a 24-hour contract, and have him swing a golf club in the clubhouse. Knocked Gooden out for awhile in the early 90's.

    This organization truly is gutless.

    maybe jerry can get ollie up in the bullpen every night. at some point he's either gonna refuse to do it and void his contract or he'll agree to go to the minors
