Cleveland Indians Closer Chris Perez Expands On Comments About Fans

Cleveland Indians closer Chris Perez put a damper on another nice win for the Tribe when he went off on the local support for the team in the locker room following Cleveland's win over Miami on Saturday.

Perez was impressive with three strikeouts to log his 13th save but he then threw some heat at the fans, saying the lack of support hurts the team and their chances to land free agents. According to Nick Camino's Twitter feed this morning, Perez is dealing with the aftermath of his comments, meeting with Mark Shapiro but not really backing down from his comments in a radio interview.

It should be interesting to see what kind of reaction Perez receives at Progressive Field the next time he takes the mound.
