Mets Fan Trolling Hard in a Bill Buckner Jersey

When I initially saw this Bill Buckner jersey the first thing I thought was what other random jerseys a Mets fan would potentially wear. Considering this game was in Pittsburgh I totally would have accepted a Bobby Bonilla or Oliver Perez Mets jersey. Oliver Perez gave the Mets a 4.71 ERA over 101 appearances for a cold $44 million. As for Bobby Bo, he’s getting paid $1.2...

Arizona Diamondbacks: Bullpen provides no relief

Oliver Perez A bullpen for a Major League organization is so critical for success, and a bullpen is what the Arizona Diamondbacks lack. One game after another, the relief pitchers find someway to add a number in the loss column as they alone have a 4-7 record to the Arizona total 14-17. Some of the names in the D-Back bullpen include Oliver Perez, Evan Marshall, Brad Ziegler, and...

In fact the last time the Mets were in the postseason (2006) Tom Glavine (recently inducted to the Baseball Hall Of Fame) was still pitching, Obama wouldn’t be the president of the United States for two more years, and we all thought Oliver Perez could be a promising starter for the Mets.

D-backs' pen-manship gets high marks

PHOENIX -- The Diamondbacks received as many feelers on established relievers Addison Reed, Brad Ziegler and Oliver Perez before Thursday's nonwaiver trade deadline as they did on the players they traded, but that is as far as it got. And as far as it is likely to go. No reliever is untouchable, but the D-backs will consider trading from the group only if the other side is willing...

MLB Trade Rumors: Los Angeles Dodgers Looking for Relief Help

The Los Angeles Dodgers have reportedly backed off their pursuit of a starting pitcher and are looking for relief help instead. Of course, there’s a good reason to take any statements about a team’s plans with a grain of salt at this time of year. However, the Dodgers would benefit more from adding a good reliever or two than from adding a big name in their rotation. As things...
