Now Commenting On:

Mets OF Curtis Granderson had a triple, double and an RBI against the Dodgers on Thursday.

In his last 74 plate appearances, going back to May 2, he's batting .313 with a .378 OBP, five home runs and 14 RBI. He hit .136 in April.

“I’ve always wanted to know why someone would boo, because in the next second they’ll cheer,” Granderson told columnist Jim Baumbach (Newsday, May 23). "So which one is it? You like your team or dislike your team? You call yourself a fan and then you’ll boo?"

I don't expect him to understand why fans boo. He's not alone, by the way. I've talked to other professional athletes about booing, and fan sentiment in general, and anyone in the league for more than a few years all seem to answer it the same way. They're so far removed from our experience, and they operate with a different respect for what they do, I get why they can't relate.
