Someone needs to tell him to suck it up. These are the best fans in baseball.

Deal with it, Jacque -- it comes with the territory (731 responses)

Get some hits and the booing will stop (1368 responses)

Notice 2 places to vote "booing is ok". This way cub fans will still be perceived as cute and cudly

This was pretty interesting, too:

"Carlos Zambrano tied a career high with 12 strikeouts but got no offensive support. When he broke a bat over his knee after striking out in the third inning, manager Dusty Baker cringed, fearing his pitcher could be injured. But Baker absolved Zambrano."

How can so many thin-skinned players get "thier feelings hurt" by a bunch of fans that only cheer for a consistently bad team year in and year out?

Best way to get the fans off your back is to go out there and produce. Period. Tired of candyass athletes and their easily hurt feelings.:angry:

I can only remember a few examples of Sox fans booing their own players:
I believe Frank Thomas was booed at one point while hitting something like .200 over an extended period. D'Angelo Jimenez got some boos as well, I remember.

There were scattered boos when I was at the Contreras game last year when he gave up 8 ER against Arizona.

Mostly, though? Sox fans rarely boo their players. Anderson hopefully hasn't been booed much, and hopefully Mack hasn't either.

You'd see Sox fans booing a situation more than booing the players involved (bases loaded, 0 out, no runs scored? not cool)

Bernstein led off the radio show with this, saying he doesn't blame any of the parties involved, saying Jones has a right to not like being booed (would this be his angle if Frank Thomas or another Sox player in the past would have said this?), fans have the right to boo, and only got mad at the Tribune saying they were blowing the situation of proportion, calling the title and article unfair. For all the things to call out the Tribune on about being unfair :o: Also defending Jones for his performance, saying people shouldn't expect more for him so doesn't really know why fans would complain (as if the fans sign players), but he had no problem with an unrelentless attack on Podsednik last year, during a great first half when everyone knew what he'd bring to the table. The level the Score is going to kiss ass of all things 'Cubbies' to try and tell them 'sorry for signing the Sox' is sickening, I wish the Sox would have stayed with ESPN, then we'd also still have Rooney

Sounds like those boos may be heard all season long......

These "fans" have some serious issues if they're booing already. Half their pitching staff is injured, the remaining starters are pitching like garbage except the surprise Maddux, and they're a couple games over .500. If anything they should be overjoyed and cheering everyone as much as possible. Oh well, not my team.

oh dear god:roflmao:I quite enjoyed that quote, myself.

Strange how Jones' trademark bat flip when he hits a homer hasn't endeared him yet to Cub fans. Maybe by September, when he has 15 dingers, they'll be smitten. :cool:

I predict the management will silence him before this becomes a national story, as it well could be. Sosa, Hawkins, Patterson, and now Jones, all scapegoated for some indiscernible reason . . .

Am I the only one looking forward to an all-French outfield of Pie, Pierre, and Jacques? Sacre bleu!

I find it funny that people dumb enough to pay $60 bucks for historical bleacher seats to watch a historically bad team feel they're entitled to boo an underachieving player. On the Cubs, he's just an average player.

:rolling:

And then you have the other extreme that ignore the Sox completely, complaining about booing fans causing the top free agents to stop signing with the Cubs (like, remember a few years ago when Jim Thome was all hot to play for the Cubs).

A few more years of World Series-less ball in Chicago and I fear the hostile home atmosphere will intensify, especially if Dusty is re-signed.

Now the Cubbie fans are too mean.

Who's next....Ernie Banks for suggesting they "play 2"?

All part of Dusty's "the players are never to blame" culture.

The Dodgers already took care of that this week:

The 23rd anniversary of Lee Elia's tirade is Friday. Maybe all those cub fans that don't work for a living can go out Friday and mark the occasion with Jacques. (He's got that stupid cocked hat thing going ,too.)

I happened to tune in just when that happened. Can anyone explain to me as to why I've seen one of the Sox position players get tossed out of a game for throwing his helmet in the dugout while the Zambrano gets away with breaking his bat in front of everyone?

Zambrano must not have much sense to do something like that. He's just asking to join Wood and Prior in the Simulated Baseball League (SBL).

If Zambrano had any sense, he'd be winning 20 games a year. I forget who said this, but the guy has a million-dollar arm and a ten-cent brain.

My favorite...

In a complete reversal of Game 6 of the 2003 NLCS, the Cubs were shut out for seven innings by the Marlins before breaking through with a six-run eighth to post a thrilling 6-3 win.

A pretty much meaningless, regular season game in April equates to Game 6 of the NLCS?

Okaaaaaaaaaaaaay. :rolleyes:

Maybe they can stop blaming Bartman now. Idiots.

he probably struck out swinging...therefore he was only showing himself up, and not the umpire.
