The real meaning behind those Daniel Jones ‘boos’

The first instinct is to tell Daniel Jones: relax, kid, you’ve joined a long and distinguished line of people who got themselves good and booed at Yankee Stadium.

Babe Ruth was booed there, for having his first non-Ruthian season. Joe DiMaggio was booed there when he decided to hold out for a fatter contract at the depths of the Depression. Mickey Mantle was booed for not being Joe DiMaggio. Roger Maris was booed for not being Mickey Mantle. Derek Jeter and Mariano Rivera were booed after teaming up to win four World Series, with another one still on the way.
