Getting Booed Is Part of the Territory

So far in 8 games at Yankee Stadium, Giancarlo Stanton is batting 086 with only one homer and an eye-popping 20 strikeouts. This horrible start at the plate in NY has led many of the Yankee faithful to start booing Stanton. This in turn has sparked an "anti-boo" movement with many coming to defend Stanton.

Ben Maller rolls his eyes at this notion and blames it on a generational divide. Anyone younger than 30 years old has been raised in an era of participation trophies and see booing as a form of bullying which Ben finds ridiculous.
