    I'm sure he is, but he's a human and boos should be reserved for effort plays

    Not failure to execute

    Booing is bush, defending booing is akin to defending bullying its an empty sentiment

    Agree. Not the time to whine about fans.

    The fans have come out, filled the park, and cheered their hearts out. The Reds (other than Homer Bailey) have laid an egg.

    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.

    Yes, that is how you are supposed to act. You cheer for the good. You stay silent for the bad.

    Sounds like Jay is scapegoating for the frustration of the last two days (similar to the minority of fans that he whines and tweets about).

    Yep, that's realistic. I think all sports fans should adopt that approach immediately. I'm sure it would be no problem to take emotion out of it when your team is doing poorly.

    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.

    You have to understand these are humans who strive to be excellent for the approval of others. The booing has an effect, those who say it doesn't just don't want to give it up. Groaning and booing are different.

    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.

    Read the SF messageboards, it will make you feel better. They can't wait for Bochey to do something else to complain about. I think a large % of sports fans are tyrannical, whinny, bossypants's! Very few fan bases get to enjoy sustained success and that's not fun!

    I think you could say the same for any fan base. You just may be too close to the situation. If you could step back you would probably see that.

    Lot's of crazy people on the internet.

    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."

    I don't think I've ever booed my own team in my life. Generally I stay quiet and say bad words to myself.
