No Hard Feelings

Bart Hubbach at The New York Post writes about the after effects of the Oliver Perez arbitration case:

"I know it's a business," said Perez, who was excused to attend the four-hour hearing with his agent, Scott Boras. "That stuff is outside the game. Both sides have a job to do. There are no hard feelings."

GM Omar Minaya agreed, saying he doesn't consider the drastic step of an actual hearing will keep the Mets from re-signing the 26-year-old starter when he likely heads to free agency next winter.

"We'll see what happens, but I don't think it will impact his desire to stay with us," said Minaya, who sought out Perez to shake his hand and offer congratulations yesterday in the clubhouse.
