Mets Fan With A Brilliant Idea To Rid Team Of Oliver Perez
Dereck Mollins at The Point has created a rather unique and ingenious way to rid the Mets of their much beleaguered, enigmatic lefty, Oliver Perez.
Mollins is running a campaign to raise the $12M via donations from fans, to provide to the Mets so that Perez's contract can be bought out.
The plan is to raise the money and present it to the Mets by February 13, 2011 - the day pitchers and catchers report to Spring Training.
Donations can be made by using the above link, and you will only be charged if the $12M is raised. If the Mets decline the "generous offer", all money will be donated to charity.
We are not saying that anyone should or should not contribute, just reporting an interesting idea to rid the Mets of a $36M mistake.
Maybe if the Mets get wind of this idea, they might be compelled to just get rid of Perez on their own, and let the hard-working fans keep their money, or better yet, they donate it to a worthy charity...like metsfan73. Exhale, I'm only kidding.
***update*** for some reason he closed the campaign after raising $290.00
