Absolutely. Much as I love to be there, I do sometimes feel that Fenway is a little too negative for its own karma--chanting "Yankees suck" when the Yankees aren't there is a case in point; it is hilarious and true but probably uncalled for. My dislike for Lugo notwithstanding, I'm really impressed by the fans that were supportive.


I'm so glad you said that. I was listening to the game on the radio and I thought I heard "Let's go Lugo", but how could that be? But, yeah, now I know.


I was at the game Monday, and sadly, the fans (in my section anyway) were much more [typically] fickle than the game audio you heard would lead you to believe. At each of Lugo's at-bats, the supportive "Let's Go Lugo!" chants were instantaneously replaced by boos the second he didn't get a base hit. Not much better when he drew his 2 walks. Harsh. Really started to anger me.

I personally believe the only time you can even think about booing your own team is when they very obviously aren't giving it their all. It seems to me that positive encouragement is so much better (and more likely to help) for a player or a whole team that is struggling!
