Cleveland Indians Closer Chris Perez is blasting fans for what he calls their lack of support and an "embarrassing" attendance record to date.
While the Tribe is ranked first in the American League Central, the team is dead last when it comes to attendance in the majors.
"It's not a good atmosphere, it's not fun to be here," Perez said.
When asked if his teammates share his feelings, he admitted he's not the only one.
"They feel the same way, they just won't say it," Perez said.
From expressing his concerns about other teams and their outlook on playing in Cleveland, to the media and blaming them for negative spins, Perez sounded off.
Listen to his interview below:
Perez admits that the weather and economy are factors, but he says his anger built up over time and that Thursday was the last straw for him.
"We're in first place, enjoy it. We could be in last place-- could be the Royals, could be the Pirates," Perez said.
