Found April 04, 2013 on More Hardball:
Fans of baseball, especially those of the New York Mets, know Ollie Perez can be a wee bit wild at times (to put it mildly).  However, in his first appearance of the season with the Mariners he threw only 9 pitches and all 9 were strikes.  Better yet, he retired 4 batters on those 9 pitches and struck out 1 of them.  Perhaps we're looking at the next Greg Madduz-esque control artist...ah, probably not.In 2008 he lead the NL with 105 walks.  In 2010 he walked more batters (42) than he struck out (37).  For his career he's averaged 5 walks per 9 innings.
