Ollie has no problem playing in the minors for our nation's capital but not the Mets. When the Mets asked him last season to work on his lack of craft in AAA Buffalo, Perez said, "You'll have to pry the ball out of my cold dead arm." When asked why he would take a minor league deal with the Nationals for $414 thousand and would not do so last year for the team paying him 12 million dollars a season, Perez replied, "I will not pitch in the peasant class for a monarchy. I want to pitch in America for America. The Nationals are America. The Mets live under the rule of Queens, and I want to live free in the division of the Braves."
