Will Ollie Perez turn it around like Santana did last year?

Will Ollie Perez turn it around like Santana did last year? This is the only reason I am hanging on to him at this point because Johan did the exact same thing last year then he was lights out. What are the chances that this happens? LOL

I wouldn't hold your breath, and now he's injured to boot.

Santana had much better peripheral stats during his "slump." Perez is just walking too many batters right now. Plain and simple. It's always been a problem in his career. Nobody knows when, and if, he'll remember how to throw strikes.

As soon as he does, he'll be good again.

they sent to the minors to work on a change up. they told him to throw it as often as possible.

they're different cases, but ollie could certainly "turn it around". granted, there's no pressing reason to think he will like there as for johan last year, but we know ollie's got the skills.

espIn did a feature on him last night. i caught it as i was walking between rooms. i thought that i heard that they sent him down to work on it, but i guess that i was wrong.

they did make him work on his change and tell him to throw it more often...

;-D

I think Ollie will turn it around, but to maybe a mid/high 3 era level at best...nothing like his 2.98 stuff last year.

He won't turn it around, because I'm not going to drop him like I did Santana last season. :-o

In all seriousness though, I think it's a 50/50 shot. Last year he stopped walking guys out of nowhere. This season he's back at it. We know he can do it for a whole season, he just needs to remember how. If he does, he's going to be BETTER than Santana from the point he fixes the probelm on. I just see no proof when it'll happen yet.
