Just when you thought we were settling in for a rather ho-hum Subway Series, along comes Frank Francisco and his mouth. Francisco had this to say about the Yankees:
“I can’t wait to strike out those chickens. I want to strike out the side against them. I’ve done it before.”
This being New York, the comment landed on the front cover of the New York Post. (Speaking of quotes, that back cover is priceless.)
It will be interesting to see what effect this has, if any, on the Yankees. I don’t think they will do anything without another provocation, but if a Yankee gets hit tonight, things could get interesting.
Of course we might not have a game tonight. As I write this, the scene outside my window looks like that scene in “Caddyshack” when Bishop Pickering and Bill Murray play that round of golf. Hopefully, things calm down and dry out before 7pm.
