Losing is not fun. It’s something that every professional athlete has to go through at some point in their career, and very few enjoy it. Some are able to handle it better than others. Others are like Indians closer Chris Perez.

Perez, who has been nothing shy of a completely d-bag to reporters and the Indians front office all season long, remained in a horrible mood after notching his 37th save of the year in a 4-3 win over the White Sox on Tuesday. Here are some examples of his postgame chat with reporters, courtesy of the Plain Dealer:

Reporter: How did it feel to play the spoiler today?

Perez: ”I could care less. I’d rather be playing for something.”

Reporter: How have you managed to stay sharp between save opportunities?

Perez: ”I’ve had a lot of practice this year.”

Reporter: What’s been your routine because you wouldn’t expect to go six, seven or eight games between save opportunities?

Perez: ”Have you watched us this year? We haven’t been in seven or eight games in a row.”

If the last part seems like it was completely unnecessary,  that’s because it was. Perez ended his media session with reporters when he said, “It will be a fun last couple days of the season when I’m allowed to talk again.”

Does this guy need the whambulance or what? The Indians have had some bad seasons and Perez has been pretty good during them — we get it. But there are plenty of guys on losing teams who find a way to grind it out without ripping their own fans or cursing at fans on the road. Perez obviously feels he is bigger than the team. If I worked in the Indians’ front office, I’d be dying for the offseason to get here so we can get rid of this guy.
