PLAYERS: Chris Perez
TEAMS: Cleveland Indians

Pop quiz: Who leads MLB in saves right now? I could have also asked who is the closer for the Indians but we gave that away in the article title.

I am guessing Chris Perez has flown under the radar to many sports fans and our readers. A quick crash course in all things Chris Perez should include that he was an All Star last year, 4th in saves in 2011, and was the guy who called out Cleveland fans for not coming out to see the Indians when they were in first place. But after today, I think Perez's name might ring out with a bit more staying power as he's know the guy who yacks when he pitches. Apparently this isn't the first time either. Below is the video at least until the stodgy new media gestapo at MLB has a stroke and calls youtube crying.

I guess credit to the Indian's booth for just continuing on with the game recap. Thinks like people puking for me personally is usually a "stop what you're doing" type of event, but these are real professionals here. If you're curious, Perez threw only 15 pitches and the temperature was about 90 degrees when this occurred so who knows exactly what led to this memorable moment.

With the Indian's still in contention and Perez now adding more excitement at the ballpark, I'd hope the Indian's attendance problems for this year are behind them now.

Your browser does not support iframes. Chris Perez earned his MLB-best 20th save over the weekend, and it may have been his toughest of the season.

Video: Chris Perez vomits after clinching save

Indians’ closer Chris Perez leads the MLB in saves with 20, and also seems to be one of the leaders in projectile vomiting as well. He puked at least twice after clinching this save, and tried to laugh it off to no avail.

Acta’s Indians Fit National League Style

Manny Acta, a man with three years of managerial experience in the National League, suddenly has a team in his Indians with a National League feel to it. Sure, there’s the middle of the order threat in DH Travis Hafner that is relegated to a PH in National League parks when healthy (Hafner is currently on the 15-day DL, of course). Other than that, however, the way the Indians...

Tribe Shutout for First Time in 2012

It took 58 games, but the Indians were finally held to zero runs for the first time this season. It came at the hands of right-hander Kyle Lohse with a little help from his bullpen. Justin Masterson pitched very well, but the Indians lost 2-0 last night and have now lost in six of Masterson’s last seven starts. Let’s start with Justin Masterson, who looked like the 2011 Justin...

What More Could Justin Masterson Do To Get His Indians A Win in St. Louis?

Justin Masterson needed to return to the form he had last season as the Cleveland Indians went out to play the Current World Series Champs in St. Louis. Masterson did exactly that, he did it so well the Indians didn’t even give him any run support either. How many time did we see that last season. The Cleveland Indians lost to the Cardinals 2-0, this is the teams first shut out...

Tribe Weekend Recap: Where My Heart is Cleft Asunder

Every three years the Indians play the Cardinals in Interleague Play, which means the team of my childhood plays the team of my (somewhat immature) adulthood. The last time this happened was 2009—during the depths of the Tribe rebuild. I brought up my brother and his wife for a weekend series that saw the Indians take two of three from the Cardinals, along with me doing shots...

Box Score: Indians 4, Cardinals 1

Kip. Kip. Boom. That’s the story of this one as Cardinals closer Jason Motte challenged Jason Kipnis with a 98 mph fastball that he deposited into the right field seats for a three-run homer that gave the Tribe a 4-1 victory. That Kipnis blast came after a dramatic bottom of the eighth where Vinnie Pestano walked the bases loaded with one out and then struck out Yadier Molina and...
