“[Oliver Perez’s] path to being an invaluable member of the Mariners actually began the day he left the Mets for good.

“‘I couldn’t believe it,’ Perez said in a recent interview. ‘I got home and I cried with my wife. I was in shock. But I was only 29. My family told me, ‘You are too young to quit.’ ‘”
