RED SOX FANS BOO A-ROD
Boston fans were happy to stick it to A-RodI don't know which is more odd... that this was a story written for the Boston Globe, or the fact that Yahoo! only reposted the parts about the booing and not the other half of the article which is about A-Rod's contributions since his return. I've said it before and I'll say it again, Yahoo! Sports is the biggest joke on the 'net.
While there are some in Boston who believe Mark Teixeira could rival Alex Rodriguez(notes) as the most hated member of the New York Yankees, Beantown fans did not miss on their chance to needle the All-Star third baseman, according to the Boston Globe.
According to the Globe, the booing Rodriguez received in the first was not over the top, but the crowd loved it when he popped out with Teixeira aboard, and then when he bobbled the glove-to-hand exchange and was late with a throw to second base that would have forced Mark Kotsay(notes) in the second inning. Rodriguez was charged with an error, which contributed to a four-run inning against A.J. Burnett(notes).
When Rodriguez came up in the fourth inning, the crowd seemed to be more into bashing him. A few "A-Roid" chants surfaced, as did the "Steroids! Steroids" cries. When Josh Beckett(notes) struck him out on a slider away, the crowd roared, the Globe reported.
