2 Good Seasons by Ollie P... That's what he's got.

1 Season (10-7) that was respectable...

Every other season has been a Train Wreck...

Someone will take a chance that he can be 'respectable' again - but it's not gonna be in NY.

Ollie smells like doodie and the farm is overloaded with manure.

He should have been released last year when he refused to report to the minors/

Aren't the Mets a little too broke to be paying $12 million for guys to be playing for other teams? Hell may be more than that if they cut Castillo too.

i think the mets will never learn their own mistakes, just to know that till now they refuse to take respondsability for the wrong long term deals that they give to beltran, perez, castillo, and so on, the rule of thumb should be short term 3 years well pay and if the player can't perform as expected, then do not sign him again plain and simple!!!
