Perez’s gesture fuels Indians-Royals rivalry
“It’s just terrible,” Dyson said. “Nobody told me about it. As soon as I got done with my at-bat, I went down to see where the pitch was because I felt like the pitch was in and I saw him do that and it (ticked) me off even more.”
It’s the latest incident involving Perez, who recently criticized Indians fans for their lack of support and was fined earlier this season by Major League Baseball for an inappropriate tweet after the teams had a contentious series in Kansas City.
“That’s the only reason I did it,” Perez said. “I said, `All right, you’re coming for me, I’m coming for you.’ If I strike you out, you’re going to get the `can’t see me face.’
“What happened? Three pitches. You can’t see me,” he said.
“I can’t wait to face him again,” Dyson said. “I want to beat him. That’s the good part of this game, you get to go back and try to beat a guy, beat a team. If I had seen it, I would have said something, probably jumped out of character. Usually, that’s not me. Though that’s not how our organization is.
“But that’s the game. When you win, you can say what you want,” Dyson added. “They beat us. We lost. We have nothing to say. You lose, you shut up and go out and try to beat them. Then you can have something to say.”
“If he took offense to it, oh well,” Perez said. “It happened and it’s the same as when a hitter hits a home run and they come back to the dugout and do all their hand-slapping stuff. We see that as pitchers and we don’t take offense to it because he just hit a home run.”
