The money that the Mets are waisting on Oliver Perez could have been used to sign Derek Lowe or Pedro Martinez. It will be real hard for the Mets to go to the post season with Perez in the bullpen or in the starting rotation. He can't pitch past two innings and when he does he walks five or six peolple. The Mets should have known that this would be a problem because no other team was trying to sign Perez. So we should just sign Pedro and call it a day. Besides Pedro could never pitch this bad even on his bad day.
