For Pete's Sake

Royals catcher Salvador Perez loves to harass Lorenzo Cain in Instagram videos

It seems that Royals catcher Salvador Perez uses his Instagram account for no other reason than to torment teammate Lorenzo Cain.

Here are 12 short videos (each about 10 seconds long) in which Perez seems to take pleasure in bothering Cain, whom he calls his “brother from another mother.” You know, stuff that brothers do: secretly recording Cain as he sings or chasing him through the clubhouse.

You can see they’re good friends. But watch these videos and you can’t help wondering if a reality show starring Cain and Perez wouldn’t be a huge hit.

After all, it already has the tag line: “I told you, don’t touch me.”
