Boos rain down on Machado

Superstars get booed, said Yankee Manager Aaron Boone

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.”
