The New York Yankee salary total is the highest in major league baseball. Many make ten or twenty or event twenty-five million dollars a year to hit a baseball into the air or on the ground. During the past series with the Detroit Tigers these major league players did not even hit 200 and a star like Robinson Cano secured 3 hits in 40 times at bat. We now have been told the reason for this terrible performance.
First, disabuse your mind that players are responsible for not hitting. One player was able to identify the problem: “I really think the booing spooked a lot of guys. A lot of guys hadn’t been booed before. I was surprised how much it bothered them. I just don’t think they really recovered.”
Gee, imagine receiving $15 million a year and hearing a boo! Wow! I never realized how sensitive are members of the New York Yankees. I think baseball should make illegal booing sensitive players.
