During the sweep of the Washington Nationals, I have to say I was completely disgusted by Mets fans for the treatment of Fernando Martinez.
Who the heck do you think you are “booing” a 20 year old kid who just came up yesterday from the minors? What gives you the right to “boo” your future superstar?
If you thought that he was going to come up swinging a hot bat, you were only kidding yourselves. Martinez just got to the majors. There is a difference between playing in the minor and playing in the majors. Not sure if you are aware of that.
I would’ve loved to have seen the kid get his first hit these past two games. Unfortunately, it did not happen. That is no reason to “boo” him.
Did he make a mistake in tonight’s game? Yes he did. He should’ve ran out the ball. He didn’t. Big deal!
Like you don’t make mistakes? Are you all of a sudden a thing of perfection? Far from it I can assure you.
Mets fans only embarrassed themselves. Congratulations! I hope you’re proud of yourselves. Personally, I was disgusted.
Martinez made a fantastic catch in right field. How quickly you forgot that.
I was ashamed to be a Mets fan tonight. You should have given Martinez support. The way you booed him, you were ready to ship him back to Triple-A.
The kid made a mistake. Get over it! If it was a veteran like Wright or Reyes who made that mistake, go ahead and “boo”. Not the new kid!
Martinez knew he made a mistake and apologized for it during the postgame report.
Deal with it. Get over it. Now support the kid.
