Apparently, Nick Swisher was upset at the treatment he's been receiving from some bleacher creatures over the last couple games. Here's more on the story via Bryan Hoch:Nick Swisher and Yankee Stadium's right-field Bleacher Creatures have enjoyed a warm relationship over four seasons in the Bronx, one that includes Swisher enthusiastically acknowledging cheers with a left-handed salute during "Roll Call" each day. But on Sunday, as the Yankees took the field for Game 2 of the American League Championship Series, Swisher's heart wasn't quite in it. Stung by jeers he heard from the home crowd during the Yankees' Game 1 loss to the Tigers, Swisher acknowledged that he offered just a lackluster wave when he heard his name chanted. "That's the last thing that I ever thought would be in this ballpark, that people would get on you that bad," Swisher said after the Yankees lost, 3-0, to fall into a 2-0 deficit in the ALCS. "Especial...

  • As a former right field bleacher section seat holder (relocated to the left in the new stadium) I know that during the playoffs many non-regular seat holders get bleacher seats and they "behave" in a manner that they think is "bleacher style" rudely. Nick should know that these comments most likely aren't from his regular fans
  • Dear Tiger Fans,

    When I come to Detroit could you please be nice to me and help me to feel good about myself.

    They're so mean to me at Yankee Stadium and my feelings get hurt on a daily basis.

    If your nice to me I promise to be as ineffective in yopur stadium as I am in mine, which also why the fans yell at me and hurt my feelings.

  • Nick - Sorry to hear this hope to see you in a Rangers uniform next year we want you here
  • Nick.

    Your a joke that's why we jeer you. Your not worth .00001% of the ticket price and I'm glad your feelings are hurt.

    It's interesting that while the team is in a 0-2 slump you want to mention how poorly your being treated. How about donate half your salary to help fans buy tickets and then talk about your feelings.



  • Yankee fans have become the worst in baseball.The ugly boo'ing of their own players makes 'em look like selfish,spoiled children with the manners of barnyard animals.They gave the team ZERO SUPPORT but jumped to their feet to BOO at every opportunity.Ugly behavior.Incredibly,they actually expect the players to be LOYAL to the fans and want to WIN FOR THEM.How frickin' stupid is THAT?

    Boo'ing their own is counter productive.It demoralizes the players,makes them cynical towards the fans,embarrasses the city and OTHER YANKEE FANS,The only purpose it could possibly serve is to give loud mouthed,brainless,spoiled a-holes an opportunity to be themselves - at EVERYONE else's expense.

    No doubt,the elitist Steinbrenner Stadium has something to do with this phenomenon.Yankee Stadium was rowdy,and yes,sometimes there was boo'ing [not good then either].But the fans put MOST of their energy into supporting the team,not demoralizing them.Well,it's too mch to expect the stadium to be torn down.But the team should be tron down to the ground.Stop trying to fill the seats by signing older big name players and load the roster with kids.Spend two or three seasons LOSING.FORCE the fans to grow some patience and appreciation for what these guys do.Then,maybe,we'll get another generation of greats like the team of the 90's...and fans who actually deserve them.

Why Nick Swisher is right about the Yankee fans who boo their own

I wondered today if anybody was going to be the Eric Winston of the Yankees and call out those Yankee fans who have been booing their own players.

Yankees bench A-Rod and Swisher for Game 3
