Rays vs. Red Sox GDT 2: Where Myers gets payback?

Elsa

Maybe Myers didn't hear "I got it!" And maybe he can pay back the Boston fans who taunted him by chanting his name for hours?

Originally, I asked: "Where Myers gets vengeance?" But it occurred to me "payback" was a more appropriate term in this situation. Why? Well, let's consider the nature of the Red Sox fans' attack on Wil Myers.

> Myers misplays ball.

> Fans chant, "My-ers! My-ers!" for two hours.

> Fans, through gravelly throats, boast about the day's chanting to friends.

This, to my trained mind, appears more like some strange religious sacrament, some sort of tribal worship of Myers, rather than a legitimate attack on his person. The intent of attack is there, sure, but the execution and planning (both rather hasty, one must assume) leave only the strange glow of a praise-attack.

The fans pretty much did, of their own choosing, what every god-king of the Bronze Age tried to force people to do.

So what can Wil Myers do to pay back the fans? I am not totally sure. Hit two homers and fling his bat into the stands? Steal home and rip his pants? Drive in the winning run and tip his hat for an hour to the Sox fans?

How do you pay back a praise-attack?
