Today’s poll was a little different. Usually, I ask a very general or broad question, but this time I asked my Twitter followers to pick a side: Good Oliver Perez or Bad Oliver Perez, who will show up for tonight’s game?
- theskyzthelimit said: GOOD OLLIE all the way man!!!
- maverick4880 said: I think Good Ollie...just as a tease!!!
- pattigibbons said: I so want the GOOD Ollie to be there! :fingers crossed:
- Section518 said: Good Ollie, all the way! (Fingers crossed)
- metgirl4ever said: GOOD OLLIE...God willin' and the creek don't rise
- metstweets said: I'm going with the nominally above average Ollie which we think, wrongly, is the lights out one. Mets 6, Brewers 4.
- ProctorsArm said: Great Ollie! #Mets
- Jbones72 said: ...Good Ollie, he's due!
- fullnelson said: Hopefully The GOOD OLLIE for the #Mets tomorrow. Just give 5 or 6 innings with less than 3 earn runs.
- Citi_Field said: The Padres have been playing good so far. Could be good Ollie. He does well against good teams. So far, that's the Padres.
- JTKrycek said: well, last year he tended to alternate, so since last time was BAD ollie, i'm saying this time we'll see GOOD ollie
- mhack said: I have a feeling about the Good Ollie. He'll build up hope early in the season so he can break hearts down the stretch.
- ByronBrewer said: Good Ollie. I'm feeling optimistic. :)
- MetsNY81 said: The Good Ollie! I predict he'll pitch 7 innings w/ 8+ K's and only 2 walks allowed. (I know, 2 walks.. wishful thinking!)
And the pessimists…
- thebrowncoat said: I've got to go with the BAD OLLIE. I think Mexico stole the GOOD OLLIE and they're holding him hostage.
- darknova306 said: It's gonna be the bad Ollie. He'll get distracted by Mr Met. I'm losing the little faith I had in him quick.
- NYMetsGrrl94 said: Poo Poo Perez!
- TCMChristmas said: BAD Ollie
- metsfan said: good ollie for 4 innings, then...
So it seems that Mets fans are anticipating a good game out of Perez tonight. Is it just blind faith? Maybe. It’s up to Perez to prove either side right.
