"When he came out, Perez said that his knee had been bothering him all season. Asked which knee, he paused and looked down. 'The right one', he said."Because while there's a list for injuries, there is as of yet no sanctioned list for incompetence. Hence, the "injury."
So let me get this straight: The Mets are going to put Oliver Perez on the DL for what looks like a conveniently invented injury, and they misdiagnose the real ones???
Mike Pelfrey takes up a roster spot and the Mets lose Darren O'Day because they deem a DL stint isn't necessary for tendinitis, but Oliver could go on a two week paid vacation for an ERA which is a bases loaded walk to Jamie Moyer short of ten? I, as usual, am confused.
(Editor's note: Darren O'Day, since stepping off an airplane and giving up a game winning hit to Kevin Millar in Kason Gabbard's jersey, has two holds and has given up nothing of significance to the opposition. Omar Minaya will regret this. I already do.)
