This is absolutely true. And I haven't boo'd Phillips since 2011, but now having been to Cards/Reds games at both ballparks, I'd have to say the booing is more or less the same for Phillips and Yadi.
Honestly I always liked Cueto less than Phillips, anyway. But again, wouldn't mind having him pitch for the Cards.
