Not only is he refusing a minor league assignment, but also the New York Post quotes two anonymous Mets players that they want Perez gone.
My take: What else is there to say? He is a selfish player who doesn't have the best interest of the team. His contract at this point is a sunk cost, but it will be very tough to just toss away 20 million dollars. Would a D Willis for Oliver Perez trade work? Not that D-Train is much better, but he's a bad contract and the Tigers just designated him for assignment.
