The Boss said after the game that he thought the fans would put a stop to the booing of A-Rod after his dramatic 12th-inning home run on Wednesday, but scattered boos were heard after each of Rodriguez's four at-bats against the Mets on Friday night.
"Nobody likes to hear that," Steinbrenner said after the game. "But he's got to put up with it."
After his game-winning homer on Wednesday, Rodriguez said he hoped that the boos "were behind me," but there they were once again on Friday.
Steinbrenner said he expected the fans to show their support for Rodriguez after his heroics against the Braves.
"I think they'll treat him better now after the other night," Steinbrenner said.
