VIDEO: Tigers' Joe Nathan apologizes for making gesture at fans
Tigers close Joe Nathan now thinks better of giving it back to the Comerica Park crowd.
You'll recall that on Wednesday night, struggling Tigers closer Joe Nathan got off to a rough start in the ninth inning before shutting the door on the Pirates (DET 8, PIT 4). After Nathan walked the first two batters he faced, the Comerica Park crowd lusitly booed him, and Nathan responded with a rather unambiguous gesture directed at the fans. Now, Nathan's apologizing for having done so.

Fair enough. Next controversy, please step forward.
