Video: Chris Perez’ “You Can’t See Me” Post-Strikeout Celebration

The Cleveland Indians’ ever-competitive closer Chris Perez has added another visual celebration to his on-field repitoire — the latest, the “You Can’t See Me” as coined by the WWE’s John Cena, later improvised upon by veteran shooting guard DeShawn Stevenson. Enjoy.

    and if you’re not down with that then I got two words for ya!

  • Natedawg86

    Haha…Instant Classic

  • Nicko

    ugh.  And what was he trying to do on that last out? 

  • mgbode

    if he continues to save 90% of his chances, then he can twirl around like a ballerina and pretend to sip tea with his pinky extended for all I care

    After that last out, I thought for sure he was going to break something.

    I’m no expert, but a pitcher shouldn’t be swinging his arm in celebration that violently.  Just ask the Gramatica’s how over celebrating is on your career.

  • BIKI024

    hahahaha

    Yeah, it’s no worries.  If he did that TOWARD the batter, then he’s just a a-hole.  But it’s a more of a self celebration, not trying to directly show up the other team (as much as it looks like).

    I for one will be doing this celebration after every successful meeting I have.

    I have no idea what the big fuss is about this.  It is the same the offensive players hooping and hollering after hitting a home run.  Baseball and its “real fans” need to get over themselves.  Baseball is no different than the NBA or NFL.  The players get emotional and show it on the field.  I actually love it and I think it helps the game.  It shows the players actually have a personality.

    This guy is an idiot!

    He really is. Here’s Dyson talking about how Perez’s childish bs makes the Royals that much more fired up to face the Tribe. http://www.cleveland.com/tribe/index.ssf/2012/05/indians_closer_chris_perez_sti.html

    They sure looked fired up tonight.

    Also, what’s a “repitoire”?

  • Hypno_Toad

    Did you miss the part where Dyson told Sipp the night before that he was “coming for Perez”?

    If I was Perez I’d wave bye-bye to his ass on the way back to the dugout after those comments. 

  • Hypno_Toad

    Really it seems like some of the “purists” aren’t happy unless baseball is as slow and bland as possible.

    How dare they show emotion!!?!?

  • ClevelandFrowns

    Right, because Perez was talking junk about the Royals in the first place. The whole thing is dumb. Perez, as pleased with himself over 20 innings of work as any pitcher in MLB history, keeps pouring gas on the fire. Meanwhile his team just got bounced out of first place and is giving little to no indication that it can keep up with the White Sox.

  • ClevelandFrowns

     Perez made it pretty clear that the gesture was intended to show Dyson up.

    “I said, ‘All right, if you’re coming for me, I’m coming for you. If I
    strike you out, you’re going to get the ‘U Can’t See Me’ face.’ That’s
    what happened — three pitches and you can’t see me.”
