Anyone watching or listening the game Monday afternoon heard the cascade of boos come down when Manny Machado came to the plate. I can’t remember a time when a Padre player caused such a fierce reaction.
What do you think folks? Do you like the attention it brings to the team, or do you prefer to fly under the radar?
“I get booed everywhere I go,” said Machado, who finished 1-for-4 with a double. “Great players get booed. It happens.”
But were these boos -- from a sold-out Yankee Stadium crowd -- any different?
”A boo’s a boo,” Machado said. “We took the L. There’s nothing worse than that.”
