The first booing of A-Rod in 2008

It was a memorable night in the Bronx. Not because the Yankees made a nice comeback, but because A-Rod faced his first boos of the season after striking out for the 2nd time in the 8th inning.

This booing came right on the heels of the Yankee fans in attendance serenading Rodriguez with MVP chants as he came up to the plate. You stay classy, Yankee fans.

UPDATE (10:19 PM): Check out the video. Listen closely as he is walking back to the dugout. Nuts.

UPDATE (7:50 AM): I've been informed that the fans may or may not have been booing the umpire for his strike call. Yea, the Yankee fans have really earned the benefit of the doubt with their treatment of A-Rod the past few years. I will admit this was really no big deal, and people at the game reported a smattering of boos. However, one of the joys of blogging is getting my opinion out there, for better or for worse.
Talk about it in the NYYSI Forums!
