WATCH: Did Joe Nathan do f--- you gesture to home fans?

Detroit Tigers fans long ago lost their patience with closer Joe Nathan, who again was booed Wednesday night after walking the first two batters of the ninth inning with his team up four. Nathan worked out of the jam by getting a deep fly out to left and a 5-3 double play.
