Poll Question: Should Athletics’ Fans Boo Jim Johnson?


Jim Johnson has been unable to close out games in Oakland, but has performed much better on the road. There are some that believe that the boos are affecting his performance at home. Some believe that we shouldn’t boo our own players. Others don’t care about either, and feel that his performance has dictated the response.

A couple of days back, we posted an article about Jim Johnson and the Boo Birds. I gave my opinion on the matter, and the comments suggest that many people disagree with my personal stance. The object of this post is to get a feel for how the entire Athletics’ fan base feels on the subject.

Keep in mind, there are no wrong answers, just personal opinions. Please be respectful of people who don’t vote the same way you do.

That being said, feel free to elaborate on your opinion in the comments section below.

Without further delay, here’s what you all came here for, polls!!

    could have kept balfour for less! billy beane has got to do something to get the closers back to saving more games than they blow. i read another article that suggested BB package our SS prospect (i always forget his name) plus someone else to get a new closer. no please, lowrie won’t be here that long that the A’s can afford to trade him away like so many other great prospects (michael choice). who’s going to play SS next year, or later this year even, if BB trades him away? that’d be a big mistake, imo. keep it going A’s!

    I think Johnson at the beginning of the season tried to be cutie so he could please his new fans. It back fired and now if he is in Oakland he cant deliver. So do we just use on the road? I think he will work it out , along wuth the rest of the bullpen.
