Absolutely untrue. I've seen plenty of guys get booed on their return. Hell, Twins fans booed A.J. mercilessly, even though he was traded, and was a very good player while with the Twins. When I ask Twins fans why they boo A.J., they don't seem to know why.

Cleveland fans booed Thome. Need I say more?
