Mets Fans Should Be Ashamed For Booing Jason Bay

It should be noted this has been a fun season for the most part, but the ugly side of Mets’ fans surfaced last night when they booed Jason Bay after he missed making a diving catch in the left field corner.

Yes, I know he hasn’t hit. I know he hasn’t lived up to the contract. He’ll be the first to admit it. But, the one thing Bay has done every minute on the field is give it his all. He hustles. He runs balls out. He dives for balls in the outfield.

Last night, he dove for a ball, missed and could end up on the disabled list again with a concussion.

When Bay plays hard he’s showing his respect for his teammates and the fans. Too bad he wasn’t shown the same respect last night.

Those who booed aren’t real fans. They are the element that is changing sports for the worst.

  1. I completely agree, those people who booed last night have serious issues, i actually feel sorry for them.

    My thoughts and prayers are with Jason Bay and his family.

  2. I didn’t know the Mets fans booed a player going all out to make a play.

    Pathetic.

  3. Booing an injured player is low. I was sad to read about this. I think Bay has done poorly here in NY, but I would never boo a player who got hurt, especially a guy who got hurt trying to make a play.
    While his bat may have stunk, the guy gave his all in the field (an at the plate, he just somehow lost his ability to hit).
    For his sake, I hope he rests and gets well. And if his doctors say he should not risk further injury by playing, then I hope he retires rather than risk his well being further.
