Oy vey and now Reds fans are tweeting him and he's responding. Not good.
I definitely would have been booing Leake, Stubbs and Arredondo if I had been there. What, we're allowed to cheer and go crazy when they do well, but we're supposed to act like nothing happens when they do poorly? And we're not talking about one game. Leake has been bad all year. Stubbs has been ATROCIOUS all year. Arredondo has been inconsistent-at-best all year.
Sorry, there's no crying in baseball. Some guys deserved to get booed, some guys deserve to be cheered. They're paid millions -- have some thick skin boys.
And let's not pretend like this was the majority of fans. A few fans were booing. Big freakin' deal!
I don't know, in some sense, GABP almost topped it's attendance record this year. The fans are coming around. Fans are bandwagon-y, just how it is. The players will have to continue to fight that sub-culture of the city until it relents. A little pot o' gold at the end of the rainbow will go a long way, I'm sure.
Our fans suck. Anybody with a twitter should know this. Really, really ignorant and uneducated fan base. The fan base that hated Latos the first two months of the year and tweeted terrible things to his wife after every bad start.
C Trent is clarifying that Jay answered a question (don't know what the question was). He says he was honest, and wasn't on a soapbox.
I can appreciate that, but the non-answer answer may have been the best approach.
I will say that I agree with doug about silence (I am also prone to swearing, assuming no children are in the vicinity). I don't think I have ever 'booed' at a sports event, it just seems like an odd thing to do.
"Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."
