Oliver Perez will not be released

Oliver Perez headshot.JPGThat’s what Mets sources are telling Jon Heyman, anyway.  This despite the fact that he’s (a) doing nothing to help the team; and (b) is sowing dissension in the ranks as a result of his bullheaded refusal to accept a minor league assignment. Really, it’s as if he’s begging to be released, but no dice say the Mets.

Why not? Heyman suspects that it’s hard for them to get their brains around eating all of that money Perez is still owed.  Of course he’s going to be owed that wherever he is right now, so why not free up the roster spot in the process? It’s called a sunk cost, and the Mets need to get familiar with the concept if they want to get better.

The only response to that is “well, he could turn things around.”  To that I’d say that if he had any interest in even trying to turn things around he’d take the minor league assignment.
