    FWIW, this team hasn't really done anything to merit cheering (outside of Bailey's performance in G3) since coming back from San Francisco.

    All that matters.

    Everything else is just an excuse to spend a summer night at the yard.

    It never crosses some fans' minds.

    However, all cities have fans that boo.

    I go to about a dozen Giants games a year, maybe one A's game. Never heard fans boo their own players.

    I'm sure it must happen. I've just never seen it. Strikes me as strange when I hear it in other cities.

    Philly? NY? Boston? I'm sure those places never boo.

    Giants fans booed relentlessly in Game 2, fwiw.

    Big crowds, big support by Reds fans over the 3 games.

    I doubt you will hear anything else but positives about that from here on out.

    Big crowd today... and we were LOUD (I have a little sore throat as well).

    My palms are bruised from clapping

    For the record I have never seen GABP stand on its feet for an entire game nor be as loud as they were today (which btw peaked for none other than Jay Bruce in the 9th)
    They don't think it be like it is, but it do.

    Fans at other parks must cheer for him like that too, since he has such a hard time figuring out whether he's home or on the road.
