  1. The team is the team…fans are there to support each individual on the team…not tear it apart by booi g individuals..players know when they aren’t performing…getting on them doesn’t help…itjust infiltrates the team and adds morr pressure on the individual pieces…the “fans” who are showing displeasure publicly imo aren’t true fans…

    1. I agree…it is classless. Let’s see how they handle the $40 million $$ man on the bench when he is constantly injured. Why would anyone want to play for NY? Players seem to do better once they leave. Smh…

  2. Some players are built to be a DH, not Giancarlo. He is a player that has great numbers while playing the field. Came to the Yankees and if you remember carried them the first year. Boone has admitted he is healthier and more productive when used in the field, yet continues to DH the man. The Yankee organization has absolutely screwed him. I wish he would go with another organization that appreciates his talents. He is a class act in the middle of a classless organization
