Ollie has bounced back from being locked out of the Mets complex on Sunday. Yesterday he pitched a bullpen session in front of Mets pitching coach Dan Warthen. This of course is not a official workout. That is not until Thursaday. Maybe that is why the Mets are saying nice things about Ollie.
He Mets with Alderson and Collins on Monday and told him that he wants a chance to start. The Mets were gracious in saying they will give hima shot at that. Of course there was none of that I will do what it takes to help the club. It is all about what Ollie wants.
Ollie might have the world against him but he is out to prove that there is a good Ollie somewhere in that arm of his.
