Franklin worked a perfect seventh against the Washington Nationals during an 8-6 loss in the opener, but gave up a booming home run to Laynce Nix in the eighth, prompting the boos.

"Sure, I hear it," Franklin told reporters from the Belleville (Ill.) News-Democrat and FOXSportsMidwest.com after Game 1. "I guess they've got short memories, too, because I think I've been pretty good here. It doesn't bother me, but you know, it just shows some people's true colors, you know?

"You're either a fan or you're not. You don't boo your own team. I don't care who you are or what you say. Just because you spent your money to come here and watch us play and somebody happens to make one bad pitch and gives up a homer, you don't start booing them."

Franklin concluded: "They're supposed to be the best fans in baseball. Yeah, right."

he later tried back peddling....

In his statement, Franklin said emotions had gotten the best of him. He also said St. Louis was his favorite city to play in.

So I'm not allowed to be angry when my team (WSox) loses 7 straight to teams they should be beating?

Franklin is 0-2 with a 9.45 ERA!!! Well deserving of a good ripping from the fans.

It would be one thing if this was in Philly because yeah, we boo way too much. H*ll, yesterday they booed Philly Bot which was a robot built by local college students to throw out the first pitch. For the record, the pitch sucked and deserved the booing...anyway this is coming from St. Louis fans that are so nice they applaud opposing players!!! If you get booed in St. Louis, you probably deserve it.

It still surprises me that pro athletes get sad face when booing happens.

Part of the game.

Just take it. In your post game presser, say you deserved it and plan to earn some cheers. Situation handled.
