The New York Yankees made one of the biggest off-season moves by acquiring slugger Giancarlo Stanton from the Miami Marlins.

Stanton's addition gave the Yankees a ridiculous lineup of Stanton, Aaron Judge, and Gary Sanchez.

However, just five games into the season, Yankees fans are already unhappy with how often Stanton is striking out.

On Tuesday afternoon, despite a five-run lead in the bottom of the eighth inning, Stanton was booed by Yankees fans after striking out for the fifth time in the game.

Check it out.

Needless to say, Yankees fans took some heat for what they did. During the YES broadcast, Michael Kay can be heard criticizing fans. But that's not all. Those on Twitter had plenty to say about the fan base as well.

New York walked out with an 11-4 win, moving the Yankees to 3-2 after a series split with the Toronto Blue Jays to open the season.
