Does Oliver Perez even compare to that? As much as he has sucked the past few seasons. Did we really expect him to blow our minds away with CY Young stuff every year then choke the last day of the season?
Would he really say something like "I'm not devastated. I'm disappointed. Devastation is for much greater things in life,"?? (Did he really just say that?!) In terms of baseball, that game was devastating. Obviously Tom Glavine had his head somewhere else. But with Perez we knew his head has always been somewhere else. But we accepted it and when he was good, we cheered and when he was horrible we booed.
As much as I couldn't bare to watch Ollie sometimes, at least he wasn't Tom Glavine.
