Dude (aka Chris Perez), lighten up

Memo to Indians closer Chris Perez:

You're a major-league closer. Closers get booed. Pro athletes get booed.

That being said, you have every right to be upset when fans boo.

What you don't have the right to do is question why fans aren't coming out to watch you and the Indians play baseball at Progressive Field this season.

Understand your pay scale is far removed from the normal person in Northeast Ohio. How they want to spend their entertainment dollar is up to them. So worry about closing out games for the Indians, and less about attendance for home games.

Oh, and one last thing. For someone who apparently is bothered by fans booing, good luck the rest of the homestand after your comments following Saturday's win over the Marlins. The boo birds could be back in a hurry.
