Swisher Is Upset With Yankee Stadium Fans And The Negativity In The Air; “It Hurts,” He Said

NEW YORK – Nick Swisher is used to being beloved by the home crowd at Yankee Stadium. The man didn’t get to 1.5 million twitter followers on his RBI alone.

So, this postseason has been quite a bit disconcerting for Swisher, who is hearing a lot of boos from the home fans. Curtis Granderson might be hearing a bit more and, of course, Alex Rodriguez is the clear clubhouse leader in terms of both boos and struggling Yankees.

All three players, plus Robinson Cano, who started to hear some disapproval of his own after his cold streak hit 0 for 26, are having startlingly bad postseasons at the plate. But Swisher has enjoyed an especially close relationship with the Bleacher Creatures and other fans here, and he’s quite surprised. He isn’t pleased about any of them being booed … but he seems surprised more than anything.
