Another Francesa-less day at WFAN. So once again, we will do the honors and write Mikey's open for him today:
"Mike Francesa on the FAN today. We’ll start the new show next week. The jingle is almost done. The lawyers are still working out the name. You'll meet some of our new cast of characters. The new show starts next week. But obviously a lot to talk about today. And the Mets are THE story today. This team has lost more brutal games than I can ever remember a team losing. They were up 7-0, they had a RARE rocking chair game last night. And I have to say, I’ve been a big Pedro fan, but that was a terrible performance by him last night. You have a 7 run lead. You can’t be giving up homers left and right. And listen, I know Met fans are going to make a big deal out of the bullpen today, but a 2 run lead in that bandbox is nothing. And I also don’t want to hear about the Mets not tacking on more runs. You had a 7 run lead!! Has Wright been good in big spots this year? No. Could Delgado have given you something more than that double play? Sure. But last night was about Pedro. He can’t let that team back in that game. I mean, the Mets have blown more of these games than I’ve ever seen. Now they always pick themselves off the mat after these games. But how many times can you go to the well? How many times can you rebound from these horrendous losses? And last night gave you flashbacks of last September. The Phillies have a bunch of gamers. Rollins, Victorino, Werth. The Mets just make you scratch your head sometimes. That Phillies team was dead last night. And the Mets gave them life and now you have to be careful. Tonight is a MUST win game. I’m not big on saying games are “must win” but tonight is a MUST win game for the Mets. If they ever lost tonight with Johan, the Phillies might be off and running. Tough loss for the Yanks last night, but today is all about the Mets. We’ll get to your Yankee calls tomorrow, but today is for the Met fans."
