You have to believe me: I didn’t know what I was getting into.
I was completely unaware of the narrative surrounding Chris Perez in non-save situations (or is it tie games? Or extra innings? I get confused.).
As the kids say, “I didn’t know that was a thing.”
So when twitter exploded last night after Perez allowed two runs to break a tie game, I wasn’t feeling combative. I was mostly curious. There were so many people suggesting that Perez just couldn’t handle that situation that I wondered how I had missed it. How had Acta missed it? WIth those glasses and everything?
I had to look it up. But how?
