Please stop booing Brandon Phillips

Dearest Cardinals fans,

I am before you today, a humble basement blogger, asking – nay, pleading – that you stop your incessant booing of Brandon Phillips when he plays at Busch III.

Exhibit A:

Split G PA AB R H 2B 3B HR RBI BA OBP SLG OPS
STL-Busch Stad 3 6 26 23 3 8 2 0 2 5 .348 .385 .696 1.080

No, I am not convinced that there is some snake-oil in your boos that fuels Dat Dude.  However, there’s simply no reason to any longer provide him the crooked, misplaced fuel that he so desires.  The guy clearly gets off on your disdain.

May I suggest an alternative?  (I’m assuming you said yes.)

Just do nothing.  Absolute silence when he’s at the plate.  It might not work, but it certainly can’t be any worse than the OPS-fluffing boos.

That is all.

Sincerely,
Nick

Writing about the Cardinals and other loosely associated topics since 2008, I've grown tired of the April run-out only to disappoint Cardinal fans everywhere by mid-May. I do not believe in surrendering free outs.
