Reds pitchers Bronson Arroyo and Aroldis Chapman visited the MLB Fan Cave yesterday while wearing red hooded sweatshirts, so naturally Arroyo broke out his guitar and they did a duet, baseball-themed version of the Adam Sandler song “Red Hooded Sweatshirt” from his Saturday Night Live days.
Arroyo actually does a pretty solid Sandler impression along with the guitar playing (and presumably lyric writing), but Chapman definitely steals the show. Seriously, wait for it:
Perkins, 34, has pitched a total of 7 2/3 innings over the last two seasons due to shoulder and biceps injuries. Bollinger adds that the two could come to terms on a minor league deal, but if they can’t reach an agreement, the lefty is likely to retire.
From 2011-15, Perkins emerged as one of the better relievers in baseball, making three All-Star teams. He compiled an aggregate 2.84 ERA with 340 strikeouts and 73 walks across 313 1/3 innings.
