    Francisco calls Yankees "a bunch of chickens"

    http://www.nypost.com/p/sports/mets/...=SFnewyorkpost

    “I can’t wait to face those chickens,” Mets closer Frank Francisco told The Post when asked about playing the Yankees in this weekend’s Subway Series at Citi Field.
    I guess if you get swept, that makes you a bunch of turkeys, then?

    For the record:
    In 25 career games against the Yankees, Francisco boasts a 3.29, but has more blown saves (3) than he has recorded saves (2). He's also allowed 34 base runners in 27.1 innings, and has given up four HRs. (From www.sportsmedia101.com)

    Yeah, but he's not a chicken. Just very bad.

    When I first seen this I was thinking, "Why in the world would Cervelli say that?"

    Guess he's trying to put a bit of a spark somewhere, huh? I wonder what else could have prompted this. Was he kidding? I'd love to know the context. Or is it exactly what it appears?

    Why say something this stupid when the Yanks didnt do anything but sweep them the last time. I love it, incite the Yanks and hopefully they can beat the crap out of the Mets again.

    Francisco should shut up and sit down -- oh that's right; he can't. He doesn't have a chair.

    Amazing, how a few f'n idiots in the crowd found it humorous.

    The Yanks are chickens and Fransisco is a bullfrog.

    At the point that photo was taken, it was probably entertaining as anything to watch. You really can't draw any conclusions from a moment in time snapshot.


    But yes, Francisco appears to be quite a moron.

    I hope he fails miserably. Oh the karma would be sweet.

    seriously though, is there a reason he used the word "chickens" or his lexicon that poor?

    Re: Francisco calls Yankees "a bunch of chickens"

    The Yankees showed real cowardice in sweeping them a couple weeks ago.

    “I think I’ve said too much already,” he said.

    No chicken in our clubhouse. Best check up north in the Massachusetts area if that's what he's looking for.

    Then again, if were a bunch of chickens, and they're a bunch of chokers, I'm not so sure I want to be around for what ensues.
    Mariano Rivera was so great he was able to close a Denny's.

    I saw parts of Girardi's pre-game press conference. Jason Zillo told Girardi that three different chicken companies have called his office with sponsorship opportunities for the Subway Series.

    From earlier today:

    You know it's somewhat of a ridiculous situation when it causes Soriano of all people to crack a joke.

    bunch of chickens who swept them a few series ago
    The real reason why the Yankees keep winning is cause the other team can't stop staring at the damn pinstripes
