Chris Perez Calls Sunday "The Low Point Of His Career"

Cleveland Indians relief pitcher Chris Perez has always been vocal about his career through social media. He has over 51,000 followers and describes himself as, "Just a normal guy with an arm like a fu***** cannon." Normal guys have strong emotions, and after he fell apart on Sunday against the Detroit Tigers Perez cut no corners when he spoke about his overall performance:

"There aren’t enough words in the dictionary to describe how much I sucked today. Go ahead Cleveland, give it to me..."

Perez wasn't finished, as he went on to further express his frustration:

"Definitely the low point of my professional career. Only thing I can do is work harder tomorrow and get better. #NeverGiveIn"

Perez had a three run lead when he entered Sunday's game in the 10th inning, but after recording the first two outs, he gave up two walks, a double, a single and a two-run home run to blow his third save of the year.
