Here are some tidbits from the National League East..
- Today, Oliver Perez notified the Mets that he wants to make the club as a starting pitcher, writes David Waldstein of the New York Times. Perez met with manager, Terry Collins, and GM Sandy Alderson to inform them of his stance. However, it is far more likely that he will be a lefty out of the bullpen or be released before the season starts. Perez is owed $12MM in the final year of his three-year contract.
- Collins told Perez that he'll have an opportunity to make the Mets' rotation, writes Brian Costa of the Wall Street Journal.
- After more than two months of talks, the Phillies and manager Charlie Manuel still have been unable to reach agreement on a contract extension. Tonight, Manuel's agent Pat Rooney told Jim Salisbury of CSNPhilly.com that the two sides are not seeing eye-to-eye on dollars. “Charlie deserves to be paid as one of the top five managers in baseball,” the agent said. “I don’t want to negotiate through the media, but they know our position. Hopefully we’ll have something by Opening Day.”
- When addressing the media today, Cliff Lee insisted that he chose the Phillies over other clubs, such as the Yankees, because he felt that the Phillies gave him the best chance to win, writes Ken Davidoff of Newsday.
