Mets Rumors: Perez, Collins, DePodesta

Hot dogs, green grass all out at Shea.  Here are some Mets links for you today..

  • Plenty of people in the Mets organization are ready to give up on Oliver Perez, but pitching coach Dan Warthen is still a believer, writes Andy Martino of the New York Daily News.  Sources say that several prominent voices in the organization have been wanting to cut the left-hander for weeks, but Perez is still in camp thanks in large part to Warthen's support.  Even with the backing of the pitching coach, Perez will probably be released before Opening Day as many in the front office are skeptical that Perez can recapture some of his old magic as a reliever.
  • Terry Collins and Paul DePodesta are reunited with the Mets, writes Steve Henson of Yahoo Sports.  When he was the GM of the Dodgers, DePodesta pushed for Collins to become the club's next skipper after Jim Tracy.  Owner Frank McCourt ultimately rejected the idea and fired DePodesta.  When the 61-year-old was being considered for the Mets' managerial position, DePodesta gave a strong reccomendation to his boss, Sandy Alderson.
  • The trustee in charge of recovering the money lost by the victims of the Bernie Madoff ponzi scheme plans to go after more funds associated with owners of the Mets, a source within baseball told's Adam Rubin.  The trustee already is seeking $1 billion from Mets principal owner Fred Wilpon and his family.

      DePodesta isn’t the one who is going to lose half of everything he owns.

    As a Detroit Lions fan, I am very sympathetic towards Mets fans. Even though I laugh at them sometimes…

      At least the Lions are showing signs of getting better…

    Sigh, it’s Citi not Shea now sadly. I didn’t realize Perez had magic once either.
