An Amazing Start by Perez!

Oliver Perez just dominated tonight, he looked amazing as he went 8 innings WALKING NONE Striking out 8 and giving up just 1 ER.

I think I heard the Fox Announcers say the Mets are set up in the post season to go Pedro,Perez,Glavine as the first 3 starters if they stay on this rotation set.

There isn't much that didn't go the Mets way tonight, but I have to ask a 5 run lead in the bottom of the 9th and Heilman is brought into the game... He has now pitched in 4 out of the last 5 days, and he threw 25 pitches tonight. WITH A 5 RUN LEAD!! Heilman is around the league leaders in appearances, and innings pitched and we have to hope he doesn't run out of gas before the playoffs.

My thought is why was Heilman in this game? You have Humber, and new call up Carlos Muniz (A closer in the minors with good stuff) in the bullpen along with Sele, and Dave Williams who I'm sure could go 1 IP 4 ER.

But Willie went to Heilman and now what happens tomorrow night close game late and the starter only goes 5 or 6, and Wagner isn't available.. Your going to have to pitch Heilman again...

playing with fire.

Well, I can't say that I agree with you on the willie sentiments today there Man. I see where you are going, but we needed this game and Heilman has been - besides Wags - our rock of gibraltar out there. in a spot like that, we don't put our new guys out there. But the one thing i can throw willie under a bus for is - what's wrong with Pea pitching a complete game today? He only had 102 pitches in the 8th. He could have easily finished the game.
