Making fun of pitchers in the bullpen is an age-old baseball tradition. Now in the YouTube era we get to record such interactions for posterity. Case in point: Chris Perez of the Cleveland Indians. The relief pitcher was getting heckled by an Oakland A's fan and he didn't take kindly to it.
Normally, pitchers ignore such fan trolling, but Chris Perez decided to fight back with some trash talk, eventually telling the guy to "get your dick out of your mouth."
Here is a transcript of the Chris Perez incident:
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 guard): "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 ----."
Fan (to someone else): "Go back to whatever Triple-A team you are. You're all scrubs. You play for the Indians."
The conversation continues after Perez asks security to eject the fan;
Fan: "Oh, get me out of here?"
Perez: "Have a nice day."
Fan: "Have I said a swear word?"
Perez: "Get your dick out of 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. Fucking cunt
