One had to imagine that when Salvador Perez and Lorenzo Cain met up once again, it would be a special moment. The KC Royals teammates certainly did not disappoint.
Reuniting with an old friend is always an amazing feeling. No matter how long it has been since when last you spent time with them, there is an almost magical ability to go back to old times, picking up as though the months or years were merely a matter of minutes.
Given the relationship that Salvador Perez and Lorenzo Cain enjoy, one would expect that to happen when the KC Royals teammates would meet again during Spring Training. Fortunately, we did not have long to wait, as Perez and Cain met up again yesterday. And fortunately for us, Perez captured the meeting on video for his Instagram account.

Even though Spring Training is really just starting, at least for pitchers and catchers, Perez is in midseason form. His ability to torment Cain is exactly like that of an older brother and his younger sibling, a role that Cain seems to have down as he attempts to avoid Perez’ attention. It is certainly reminiscent of my interactions with my younger siblings when I wanted to bother them as we grew up.
While we all find joy in their friendship and bond, the interactions of Perez and Cain also remind us of something else – the chemistry that is so very important to the KC Royals. The Royals players all genuinely appear to like one another, fostering a team where the production is greater than the sum of their parts. That chemistry is a true factor in how the Royals are built, as Dayton Moore has done a tremendous job in factoring in personalities as well as tailoring his ballclub to the confines of Kauffman Stadium.
The excellent chemistry on the KC Royals begins with friendships like the one that Salvador Perez and Lorenzo Cain enjoy. It is great to see the two of them back together again, and that Perez is already up to his typical hijinks.
