I'll just say this on the Ollie/Pelfrey mention--
With Pelf, though he's probably gone, and should go...at least he didn't make and ass of himself, and he had a couple games and a few weeks and months where he looked pretty decent...if he hadn't collapsed or lost out, he might have made the All-Star Team in '10 or '11, I forget which year he started out something like 7-0 or something and then had an abysmal rest of the way.
So I don't and won't bear Pelf a grudge if/when he gets the axe.
When I think of Ollie Perez...
Two immediate memories sum up my feelings--
His being on the mound when he nearly gave up the HR that became Endy's famous catch (the best thing out of his whole Mets career--he screwed up just enough to allow someone else the spotlight in fixing that screw-up...and just missed becoming Aaron Heilman...)
He pitched the night I went to my prom--was coerced by some friends of mine--and that was the game in '09, I think, where Reyes suffered his season-ending injury, or at least suffered one of his bad leg injuries, and was up and down until Sean Green lost it late in the game and blew it--but damn it, I still associate that loss with Ollie!
Not a fan of Ollie, and I don't have fond memories.
