Infinite Jess: Justin Verlander was booed by Yankees fans, so we investigated

During the Astros-Yankees series last month, Justin Verlander found himself walking off the mound after a stellar outing. He went 6 2/3 innings, allowing five hits, five strikeouts, no walks and one run. As he made his way to the dugout at Yankee Stadium he was greeted by fans -- who proceeded to boo him
And how did he react? Well -- he tipped his cap of course. And afterward, said he felt the booing was endearing coming from Yankees fans.

On the second episode of Cut4's YouTube show "Infinite Jess," Jessica Kleinschmidt sits down with Cut4's own Chris Landers and's Yankees beat reporter Bryan Hoch to talk about the Yankees' fans responses to Verlander, his outing and how the 2011 American League Cy Young Award winner is in the midst of the greatest pitching run of all time.
