I just heard on ESPNews that Oliver Perez is going to the Mets for Nady and Roberto Hernandez. What in the world is Pittsburgh thinking? I know the guy's been awful lately, but you can't give up on a guy like that. I quickly scanned the board and didn't see this mentioned, if someone already has sorry!

this may be one of the dumbest deals for the buco's they did need hernadez with duaner sanchez out with dislocated shoulder but to add in perez this could come back to bite them badly

Sorry, Hernandez is going to the Mets, I got that backwards. So Perez and Hernandez for Nady. I just don't understand Pittsburgh

Yeah, and to think we may have been able to get Oliver Perez and Roberto Hernandez for Austin Kearns by himself. :bang:

Gotta believe now that someone just wasn't happy with Lopez and Kearns here in Cincy.

I was hoping the Reds would make a move for Perez. Oh well.

Newest rumor has the Mets turning around and shipping Oliver Perez back to San Diego alongside Heath Bell for Scott Linebrink.

I don't think the Pirates would have traded Perez inside the division.

I think they would. They traded A Rameriz and Lofton to the Cubs a couple years ago. When you are rebuilding, who cares about helping someone in your division? You need to max out your returns.

Perez has been getting lit up in AAA and only throws like 83 now. Can you say done?

:) Oliver Perez is damaged goods, and his attitude might be worse than his lost velocity. He burned his bridges with Jim Tracy when he refused to pitch out of the bullpen despite a 7.00+ ERA and something like a 2-9 record. He is not a factor.

before being dealt Oliver Perez AAA stats looked like:

1-3 (6 Starts) 5.63 ERA 34K's/11BB's

The Bucs could lovingly giftwrap Perez with bubble paper to the Reds and it wouldn't matter, he will never be the same pitcher, I mean, who loses almost 10 mph off their fastball at his age? Hmmmm.....

From Rotowire:


RECENT FANTASY BASEBALL NEWS
Oliver Perez (P) NY-N - AAA 7/31/2006
Contrary to what had previously been reported by ESPNews and others, Perez was not dealt along with Heath Bell to the Padres. Perez would have been returning back to San Diego where his career began. He will now get a chance to resurrect his flailing career in New York.

Scott Linebrink (P) SD 7/31/2006
Contrary to what had previously been reported by ESPNews and others, Linebrink was not dealt to the Mets for Oliver Perez and Heath Bell. It appears as if a deal was agreed to and then San Diego backed off just before the deadline as it felt the return it was receiving was not enough for Linebrink. He will remain in his role as Trevor Hoffman's set-up man.

The Pirates got an everyday outfielder who is 27 years old with some power who could be converted to 3B or 1B if needed and got rid of a 41 year old reliever and a starting pitcher who has promise but didn't live up to his potential. The Pirates are in last place and not going anywhere soon. They want to build for the future. Makes sense from their perspective.

Mets at 2 a.m. on July 31st found out their top set up man was involved in a traffic and would be out for the rest of the season. With 26 hours until the trade line, they got an experienced short reliever who had success with them the previous season and was pitching well this year. They also picked up as a throw in a kid with alot of potential who couldn't harness that potential. Reminds me a little of Jorge Julio the embattled Orioles reliever who the Mets pitching coach, Rick Peterson fixed and then flipped him to Arizona for Orlando Hernandez. Julio is now pitching well for Arizona and the Mets got a desparately needed starter. He's worth the gamble. Makes sense from the Mets perspective.

Good trade for both teams.

I'm suspicious of guys like Perez. Guys that were throwing in the high 90's, who can now barely touch 90. VERY suspicious of guys like that. For as much focus as hitters get when they lose weight, or have a serious decline in power, I wish more people would pay attention to the way some of the pitchers have changed. I'm by no means saying that Perez IS on steroids, but I must admit, in today's day and age, I'm very suspicious
