Jose Altuve was roundly booed by Detroit Tigers fans during his first at-bat of spring training. No surprise there, though the anti-cheering was emphatic and sustained.
Altuve, you'll remember, has denied any wrongdoing and has been passionately defended by Carlos Correa as one of the guys who refused to cheat while the rest of the Astros cheated. So, uh, that whole buzzer business was a pretty big deal in the court of public opinion.
Everyone seems to understand that Houston will be hated in each and every one of its 81 road games.
