VIDEO: MLB pitcher confronts goading fan in angry exchange

The baseball field is no place for potty-mouths, mister.

WE’RE NOT QUITE sure what the Cleveland Indians’ Chris Perez has done to deserve this baiting (or verbal beating) from the stands, but the fans dishing out the abuse certainly feel their cause is a just one.

All we know is that the fan (apparently a friend of Jeff Messam, the video’s uploader) doesn’t like the Indians, feels Mr. Perez needs a haircut and is thoroughly thrilled with his own sense of humour.

Perez for his part, could have handled the situation much better. No exchange that ends with “get your dick outta your mouth” can be claimed as a win.

As you can see from the full exchange below (as transcribed by Deadspin) the audio of this video is certainly NSFW.

Fan: “Blow some more saves, bro. Blow some more saves. Both of you. You and guy … blow some more saves.”

Perez: “I got more saves than your whole fucking team does, so why don’t you go look at those stats, you fucker.”

Fan: “Oh, what’s the standings? Oh, we’re ahead of you.”

Perez: “I don’t give a fuck. I don’t give a fuck.”

Fan (to security): “He’s swearing. I’m not.”

Perez: “What’s my salary this year?”

Fan: “What’s your salary? Who gives a shit? How many blown saves you got?”

Perez: “Four. Was I an All-Star again? Was I an All-Star again?”

Fan (to some other Indians player): “Hey, who the hell are you? Who the hell are you? I don’t even know who you are.”

Perez: “Was I an All-Star again, you piece of shit? Go back to your fucking [inaudible].”

Fan (to someone else): “Go back to whatever Triple-A team you are. You’re all scrubs. You play for the Indians.”

Perez asks security to remove the fan.

Fan: “Oh, get me out of here?”

Perez (waving good bye to fan): “Have a nice day.”

Fan: “Have I said a swear word?”

Perez (walking away): “Get your dick outta your mouth.”

Fan: “I haven’t … Oh. Really? Really? Hey. Did you hear that?

Other fan: “I did.”

Fan: Did you hear that? You’re classless, bro. Get a haircut. You’re garbage. You are garbage. You’re garbage. Way to come over here and show yourself. Way to prove yourself, garbage man.”

Other fan: “Hey, gimme a high-five. They gave each other high-fives.”

Fan: Yeah, keep walking away. Garbage. (quietly) Fucking cunt.”
