I wasn't paying really close attention, but I didn't even see a pitch in the 90s from him all night tonight...I'm sure there were a few, but the highest I've seen all year is 91 or maybe 92.
John Wehner (Pirates announcer) hit it on the head, and it's nothing you guys haven't already said...unless Perez gets the speed of his pitches back up, the hitters don't have to start their swing early, and they are able to easily hit pitches that are in the zone.
There were a lot of "garbage" hits tonight, but he really didn't do anything all that impressive in my view. Pujols' HR was just ridiculous...the ball was about 8 inches off the ground, and he destroyed it.
Seriously guys...with the way this team is going, I would not bother having Perez on your fantasy teams right now.
