Unlikely Ownership Candidate Of The Day: Is Ollie Perez The Mets Messiah?

The NY Mets may end up having the most unlikely savior of all.

Oliver Perez, never able to get out of his own jams is trying to help the Wilpons out of theirs by offering to buy a 20% share of the team.

“I have over 50 million dollars of the Wilpon’s money to spend on the team.", said Perez. "After Bernie Madoff nobody has stolen more money from them."

Ollie, who has proven that he has no control on the mound said he doesn’t expect any control in the team. Says Perez, “The Wilpons gave me money for nothing; the least I can do is return the favor.”

Even at 50 million dollars, Ollie would need to raise more money. He says that he is confident that friend and fellow cast out, Luis Castillo would be willing to put up the 24 million HE didn’t really earn as well. Ollie also tells the Apple that all time money siphon, Bobby Bonilla can chip in 1.2 Million per year of the Wilpon’s money from now until 2035!

We asked Ollie if he was part owner, he would consider cutting a player like him who was pitching so badly, his answer did not surprise us. Not only wouldn’t he cut himself, he would like to re-sign himself for 4 more years with Omar Minaya type money.

If that’s the case, perhaps the Mets should consider moving the Citi Field fences BACK, not in.  

All articles featured on The Apple are fictitious. No Mets were harmed in the writing of this story.
