    I heard Damon was booed at the Ranger game the other night

    Is this true? Boy, talk about a rough crowd. The guy hasn't played one inning as a Yankee yet and he is getting the shaft.

    Maybe a lot of them were Met fans.

    I don't think there is anything wrong with fans booing Johnny Damon (now or on Opening Day). I could be wrong, but I don't think Damon is the kind of player that will be bothered by what the fans think of him.

    Tino got booed in 1996 too, and still things turned out pretty good for him and the Yankees. Hope the same thing happens with Damon. Boo him until he's earned it, then cheer him after he helps you win.

    I'd rather cheer him until he earns the boos.

    I think I read somewhere he was booed because there was stubble on his face, not because of who he is. I also heard there were cheers mixed in. I think the boos were more of a joke than anything else.

    I won't boo him on Opening Day...unless he's 0 for 4 with 4 strikeouts.

    He's coming from the Red Sox so he's got to earn the cheers. Not the other way around.

    This is a Red Sox guy from the 2004 Championship team who said that he'd never play for the Yankees and did so for the money.

    If he's done anything to earn a reaction one way or the other, it's the boos that he's earned.

    it was mets fans. people assume mets and jets fans are always islanders and nets fans. not if they dont live in long island or jersey.

    They should be booed for going to the Red Sox, not coming from there.

    So basically, Flaherty should be booed.
    Crush it with your mind vice.

    But the whole "I'll never play for the Yankees" thing earns him serious negative points.

    On opening day I wouldn't expect the usual Yankee dominant crowd.
    Wilbon: What is it specifically about Arod that guys like Schill and Trot Nixon just can't stand?

    Kornheiser: He's better looking, he's cooler, he's got all the money. That's what they can't stand.

    I'm not saying he should be booed, but he's got to earn the cheers coming here. Pretty much just like every other player that comes here, but especially for Sox players.

    As for Flaherty, we didn't want him back and I think most Yankee fans would have wanted Flaherty to go to the Sox.

    It's a good thing they don't open in YS.

    Since Damon is probably the worst baseball player on opening day.

    It shouldn't be that way, really. But whatever.

    As for Flash, I was joking. He's a nice enough guy, he shouldn't be booed.

    Well, that's the way it is. Not saying I'm going to boo him (I'm not), but I don't care if others do. Especially at a Rangers game - when it is a completely different set of rules.
    “I mean, people knew that Brown was out there, and that Randy was ornery all the time. And Pavano is whoever he is. But if you’re their manager, you can’t go out and write about them like that.

    Hehe... this is getting existential. Its time for Eric Van to make a formula about it so that we finally know for sure that the Red Sox will win.
