During last week's All-Star festivities, there wasn't much that the Chase Field crowd saw fit to cheer. Instead, almost everyone who wasn't wearing an Arizona Diamondbacks uniform was the target of boos, a fact that didn't go unnoticed by fans watching at home.
A lot of the Home Run Derby booing had to do with hometown star Justin Upton(notes) not being selected by NL captain Prince Fielder(notes). And it makes sense that the Giants — defending world champions and Arizona's division rival — wouldn't receive the warmest of welcomes.
But The Beard does have a point here: Why would you come to an All-Star game if you're going to be so hard to please? As Wilson points out, it's not exactly a cheap outing.
