Tigers’ closer Joe Nathan, appropriately, apologized for flipping off Tigers’ fans at Comerica Park this week.

These are 3 reasons why his actions were indefensible:

  1. Nathan is a veteran closer. The last thing he should have any issue with at this point of his career is rabbit ears. Thin skin and the position of MLB closer mix like water and oil.
  2. Nathan is paid $10 million per year. It is because of the fans, who pay the freight. Nathan, and everybody else associated with MLB, should be grateful fans care as much as they do about who wins and loses. If they didn’t, there would not be any gravy train.
  3. The Tigers are in the middle of a hotly-contested race to make the playoffs. The last thing they need is a distraction like this one.
