Bullpen Mafia Doesn't Play Games
Look, I think Chris Perez should have just walked away from this one, but it was worth it just to see how the A's fan reacted when he came over.
MLB players should only approach fans when the fans are little kids asking for autographs, or really attractive girls asking for autographs. Either one. Perez broke the fourth wall and approached a blatant idiot when he knew the outcome wasn't going to be anything positive.
Perez throwing out the salary card was a little uncalled for, but when the A's fan can only come back with "how many blown saves do you have," I have to side with the leader of the Bullpen Mafia. When Oakland becomes relevant in the baseball world, maybe that guy can have a shot at redemption, but until then, he'll stay in the bleachers at O.co Coliseum where he belongs.
