Well, that is what right-handed pitcher Brian Lawrence heard Wednesday night in San Diego as he struggled with a "flat" fastball and allowed Milwaukee five runs in 5 2/3 innings on a career-matching-worst 12 hits and four walks.
And the Padres were none too happy about it following a 5-2 loss to the Brewers -- a game that ended with Brewers right fielder Geoff Jenkins catching Geoff Blum's bid for a walk-off grand slam on the warning track about 10 feet short of nirvana.
"I guess they're getting a little spoiled," said Padres manager Bruce Bochy. "Brian was giving it all he had."
"I'm disappointed," admitted Lawrence. "We're in first place. I've been here a number of years and I go out and give it my all. To get booed is not a good feeling. But I'm not going to speak negatively on it. Hopefully they'll be behind us next time."
First baseman Phil Nevin was upset.
"I was a little bit surprised just because of the way we've played," said Nevin. "Brian's a guy who has taken the ball every single day for five years now. I don't think it is very deserving. But you buy a ticket and you can do whatever you want. I don't think he deserved that.
"And I think they realized what they did and he got a nice ovation coming off the field. The crowd got on him and wanted him out of there. But our bullpen has been used a lot. For him to suck it up and eat up the last five innings was huge, something that will pay off down the line."
Wednesday night's loss was only the Padres' second in their last 16 home games. The loss snapped a six-game winning streak and an 11-game home winning streak.
