Recap: Collins after game talking Ollie & Capuano

Following the team’s 7-4 win against the Nationals today, Terry Collins talked to reporters about Oliver Perez, as well as Chris Capuano, which you can listen to here:

During the discussion, Collins basically said:

  • He wants to have compassion for Oliver Perez, especially with the treatment he receives from the fans, but the reality is he needs to pitch better.
  • He thinks his 5-man rotation has a chance to be really good because they are pitchers who do not beat themselves.
  • He will confer with his staff today or tomorrow to discuss what’s next for Perez
  • He thinks that Chris Capuano has come off as advertised and he saw today how efficient he can be.
