Sorry everyone, i was completely wrong. I thought when i was listening to Mike Francesca these past few months and heard someone utter the words Tampa Bay Rays, that Mike's response was
TALK TO ME IN AUGUST...
I apologize because i was wrong. Mike did not utter just those five words. No sir. He said way more than that. I just wasnt listen to his inner voice. That is my fault. Bad Lt Weinberg. No it was never simply Talk to Me in August when the Rays are in first place and 5.5 games up on the Yankees. No it was not. Nope. No way. Couldn't be. If you read carefully and move through Mike's renewed Bromance with Arroyo, you will see what Mike had added on to those five words.
MIKE FRANCESCA: Here's the bottom line.. I said this before I went on vacation, I said it then and now it's gotten worse. The Yankees were kidding themselves if they thought they could get through these six weeks without an infusion of starting pitching. They are living on borrowed time... They do not have any starting pitching and they better get some (WHO COULD THEY GET MIKE? WHO? DO HIS INITIALS HAVE THE LETTERS B.A.?) .. Maybe they go get BRONSON ARROYO.. he has ten wins on a team that stinks. The team is 10 games under and he is 10 and 8. I would take a shot at him. The Yankees need a couple of veteran guys if they are going to get through the next six weeks.
Boston is hurting, TAMPA, we got to see them do it down the stretch especially on the road.
GOSH, GOLLY.. I AM REALLY SORRY EVERYONE. IT WAS WAY MORE THAN FIVE WORDS. THIS IS WHAT IT WAS...
Talk To Me In August When the Rays Prove It Down The Stretch Especially On The Road.
That's 17 words. Jeez, how could I have missed all of that?
