NY Mets Players "Booing" Their Own Fans: "We can't have our fans against us"


Javier Baez, and the rest of the New York Mets, have heard their fair share of boos from the hometown fans in Citi Field during their recent fall from grace, and they're sick and tired of it.

Mets players are giving the 'thumbs down' signal after hits, their way of "booing" the Citi Field faithful, says Baez.  "I love the fans, but ... we can't have our fans against us," says Baez. "We're gonna do the same thing (to them), to let them know how it feels."

"We're not machines. We're gonna struggle... 7 times out of 10... In my case, they gotta be better."

"When we don't get success, we're going to get booed. So they are going to get booed when we get success," Baez added. 

They had some success on Sunday, beating the Washington Nationals 9-4 for their second straight win. Baez added his 26th homer, and his two thumbs down. 

It was just earlier this week that a study was released determining that Mets fans are the most stressed out fans in baseball. This latest mess won't exactly help.
