The first four batters Oliver Perez faced in his initial MLB game were as follows:

Ichiro
Jeff Cirrilo
Bret Boone
Ruben Sierra

He also pitched to other notable players like Mike Cameron and John Olerud in that game.

In their last 20 games plus 7 innings the Sox have 2 stolen bases on five attempts. They have 55 SBs this year.

Last year they had 125 on 156 attempts.

If you took a drink every time this crew mentioned exit velocity or used the term “barreled”, you would have passed out innings ago

Who will be willing to pay him the $35 million/yr that has been supposedly his wish? After this season will he drop his financial ask?
He is 12th in the MLB in fWar overall this season and fifth in bWar. He will likely get paid what he is asking.

Two almost HRs and an out at second base in a one run game so far already tonight. It’s almost like the season is scripted.

Every time I see him I say "I can't believe Oliver Perez is still in the league". Turns 38 this Thursday. Seems like a lifetime ago he had that nearly Cy Young-worthy 2004 season that seemed to herald great things.

Pitchers who can get swings and misses out of the zone is what we need more of and what makes me jealous on other teams.
