Things in New York are getting a little confusing. Fans booing is an aged old tradition that probably won’t go away anytime, some don’t like the negativity though. That’s exactly what Javier Baez tried to preach on Sunday night when the New York Mets took on the Washington Nations at Citi Field. The Mets second baseman smashed a two-run homer and celebrated the way you probably wouldn’t have expected.

If you don’t want to be booed, play better. You get paid a lot of money to play a game, deal with it.
