Cowards Boo

Ohhh, it’s so easy to boo from the safety of your seat. But place yourself beside a one Mr. Robinson Cano, realize for yourself that he stands not tall enough to pinch his head while holding a beer, but in fact tall enough (six-foot) and big enough (muscley) to make for a more than formidable fistacuffs partner.

So boo while he can’t reach you with the bat; boo while he’s still a small man at a distance — because you’ll be telling your grandkids about the day you got to meet him and how down-to-earth he was and how you got to shake his strong hands. You’ll beat your boo-words into starstruck platitudes, and you’ll love it.

Really seems like people were making a bigger deal out of this booing than it was. It was the bleacher creatures, every fanbase has them, but not every fanbase is as easily villified as the Yankees. I doubt any majority of Yankees fans would boo Cano either face to face or from the safety of their own living room.

Frankly I feel like Brewers fans cheering Ryan Braun upon his return to MLB is far more despicable than any number of Yankees fans booing Cano for getting paid.

I did appreciate the irony of Yankee fans in the bleachers chanting “You sold out!”

Fully agree RE: Braun cheering. Its one thing to cheer “our guy” when he apologizes and comes back, but this D-bag is a flat out lier who cares for no one except himself. He got people fired from their jobs and took legal action from his bullsh*t sanctimonious “I didn’t do it” nonsense. So, yeah cheer for a guy who as a millionaire scumbag, gives no concern to the lives of normal people and will step on anyone to save himself embarrassment.

So as long as Yankee fans wouldn’t boo him to his face, it’s okay. What the hell are you talking about? And what what do Brewer fans have to do with Yankee fans booing Cano for being a “sellout” when the Yankees buy “sellout” players to form their team? Honestly, bringing up Brewer fans is an “easy vilification” like you claimed happens to the Yankees. Yankee fans are no better than Brewer fans, and I can guarantee Yankee fans would cheer Jeter if a similar situation happened to him as Braun.

Booing a guy for selling out when your whole team is made up of sellouts is not even close to the same thing as cheering for a terrible, selfish human being.
