Perez deletes Twitter

Unread postby motherscratcher » Tue May 21, 2013 6:43 pm

Apparently the deluge of hate and assholery directed at Perez after the last few games has prompted him to quit twitter. I can't say I blame him. My skin isn't nearly thick enough to put up with the shit he probably had to, although you can argue he brought some of it upon himself.

I'll just miss the song of the day.

You included that last sentence just to piss me off, didn't you?

Because every asshole with a keyboard and an iPod thinks their fucking SoTD is an extra special glimpse into just how avante garde and cool they are?

I hate you and I hate anyone's SoTD.

I doubt he is really off. He will just create another one, just nobody but his friends and family will know who it is. He cant stay away from those SoTD

A week or so ago I asked him if he really came up with the SotD every time, or if it was just some app that he signed up for that does it automatically for him. Didn't get a response.

It HAS to be an app, though, right? Who could possibly keep up with that stupid shit for years on end?

No idea. But if anyone has time to come up with stupid shit every single day religiously, it's a relief pitcher.

Fuck the media for making this such a big story.

Who gives a shit? Guy didn't want death threats every time he blew a save. The real problem is the fans of Cleveland, not the closer of the Indians.

You don't think calling out the fanbase has anything to do with generally being disliked in Cleveland?

Seriously?

Thats all Im saying. If Rage would have kept his mouth shut last year there wouldn't be near as much disdain for him.

Yeah that's where I'm at. While what he said last year was pretty much correct, any pro athlete that says something like that in public should be ready for the hassle that comes with it. And the reasons for the attendance woes, fair or unfair, precede his time here and I could see some people getting annoyed with him saying how they should spend their money. And when you combine it with him taking the bait every time an idiot trolls him on Twitter plus incidents like the one in Oakland ("I don't give a f***, what's my salary" when presented with the A's having a better record than the Tribe, him telling the fan to "get that d*** out of his mouth," etc.), it created a negative perception that's kind of accurate. Nobody deserves the bile he gets on Twitter, but go check out Derrick Rose's mentions after the Bulls lost. It's pretty common. If every athlete let the crazy vocal minority of their fanbase get to them, they'd go nuts.

So when he screws up at his job (as many closers do, and he seems to do it in grand fashion when it happens), it's not a huge surprise that the fans don't have his back. You can't have that big of a mouth then be so thin skinned and defensive when you get the same thing in return during the occasional poor performance of your job. I personally don't care that much and just want to see saves, but I can see why some fans don't like him. Deleting his Twitter is the smartest thing he's done yet.

Who the Hell really cares what these guys say outside the lines? Be thankful he hasn't gone Black Jack or Gary Templeton and flip off the crowd on the way back to the dugout.

Calling out fans last year for not showing up = ok to receive death threats for blowing 2 saves in a row. Got it


and MS, I believe Perez's SoTD just followed the WNCX playlist
Galley Boys are slop on top of a so-so burger and a bun you coulde get from a Covneninet food mart generic pack. They the Antoine Joubert of burgers; soft, sloppy, oozing grease and cheap sauce and extremely overrated by a biased fan base. Proof that if you throw enough cheap sauce shit on a burger you still can't overcome the lame burger. -JB

Yes, saying it is disappointing that attendance sucks for a team in first place, then I believe making at least a small gesture and giving tickets away to the rest of the home games, all while being one of the best closers in the league is surely grounds for taking shit from a bunch of morons who on twitter.

And people bitched about him as a closer and wanted to run him out of town before his attendance quotes.

When did he tell anyone how to spend their money? All he said was that no one wants to play in front of such small crowds.

Did Vinnie Pestano and Joe Smith get a lot of shit on Twitter when they gave up HRs the other day? Probably not near as much as Perez did. FT1I has painted himself as a bit of a douche on multiple occasions......"you can't see me" to the Royals, jawing at Alex Rios, calling out the fans, going back and forth with the troll in Oakland, etc.

So while you need to be the lowest of the low to threaten someone over a baseball game, you are less likely to find those bottom-feeders circling the boat of somebody who seems like a good guy (Pestano) vs somebody who seems like a real assclown (FT1I).
