Ollie Declines Arbitration

December 8, 2008

Oliver Perez has officially declined arbitration the Mets offered. It was kind of obvious but I was somewhat hoping that he didn’t decline. I like Ollie. And sure he had some bad starts, but he also had some REALLY REALLY good ones, and that to me offsets his bad ones. Besides, he’s entering his pitching prime years, and whatever Warthen was doing with him was working.

Here are his stats from the 2008 season.

ERA : 4.22 WHIP: 1.40 SO: 180 W/L: 10-7

Sure he ranked first in the league with walks, 105 to be exact, but there’s something about him I really like.

I hope the Mets can sign him again but I’d be careful with the years.
