 If the Mets are looking for some new sparks for the team, then trade finish starter Oliver Perez for hot head Carlos Zambrano. The Mets need to show more fight like the 1986 Championship Team. Strawberry said the Mets need more swagger and to be fear. The Mets need to bring more players like Zambrano to have that fearless in them. The time is right to let go of Perez who has no clue of how to pitch. He seems to lost something on his fastball. Perez is not a smart pitcher at all. Zambrano had a good career with win and losses  108-74 and 3.58 ERA. Plus he a good hitting pitcher, Zambrano won the Sliver Slugger for three years 2006, 2008, and 2009. This year his pitching stats for 2010 is 3-6 and 5.66 ERA. I think Zambrano his time with Cubs is on thin ice. Oliver Perez is on the same list, but with New York Mets. Zambrano is guaranteed to make 18 million and Perez 12 million. Salary wise this won't make much a difference. Zambrano is slated to join the Cubs on friday. Hopefully he be on a plane to Citifield by the weekend.
