The Cleveland Indians are in first place in the American League Central but last in Major League Baseball in attendence. And that's upsetting Tribe closer Chris Perez, who had some strong words during post-game interviews last weekend.

WKSU’s Amanda Rabinowitz talks with commentator Terry Pluto about what made Perez lash out at fans.

Listener Comments:

Attendance is low because of the economy, and the weather: High ticket prices, high food prices, high beer prices and they never built a DOME - even though that is exactly how the project was initially sold to the public. Those who smoke don't frequent as often because they can't light-up there. Chris Perez could use a little math lesson.
