So, as a throw-in for Matt Garza in a trade between the Tampa Bay (nee Devil) Rays and the Chicago Cubs, a light-hitting outfielder Fernando Perez gets thrown in. A Cubs humor writer posts a light, lazy piece
making fun of him. Perez responds
. Columnist apologizes
. Perez gracefully accepts the apology, and in doing so gives us a shout-out
I'm still a Twins fan, but that's pretty cool.
