Or maybe both. Being a ballplayer is a tough life. After a day game against the Angels in which Alex Rios went 0 for 5, striking out at all five at bats, a young fan asked the outfielder for a signature as he left a charity event. Mr. Rios was not being barraged by autograph requests; it was just the one kid. When Mr. Rios said nuh uh, a man, apparently unrelated to the kid, said to him, "The way you played tonight, Alex, you should be lucky someone wants your autograph. You're a bum!" A few more choice words were exchanged, including Mr. Rios dropping the F bomb at least four times in front of the kid. The worst word used by the heckler/observer was "bum." Mr. Rios clearly was in a bad, touchy mood, but he could have lightened the whole situation even by saying "Not tonight" or something. Here's the video. Good lord, what is this kid learning from adults?
