Well, 3 days into his solo show, Mike Francesa has once again confirmed what we all already knew...that he refuses to come prepared for a show. Mike just had Jerry Manuel on and asked Jerry what he thought were a couple of very important questions. The questions were:
- Did Jerry feel that he needed to appoint one specific person to the closer role?
- Would Jerry fool with the idea of Maine as a closer?
Legit questions right? Only problem was if Mike decided to read the NY Post and the Daily News today, he would have already had answers to both items:
ON QUESTION 1 ABOUT CHOOSING ONE PERSON AS THE CLOSER..From today's Daily News:
"Still, Manuel, at least at this juncture, does not seem inclined to look for exclusivity in the closer role.
"What you have to be careful about," he said, "is anointing someone and then it doesn't work out."
"We'll just try to match up the way we have been and it'll depend on how the game is going (as to who will close). The good thing is, as we've gone through this, a lot of people have gotten saves."
ON QUESTION 2 ABOUT MAINE AS A CLOSER:...From today's Post:
"He needs more rest, needs those days off more than he needs to be a bullpen guy right now," said manager Jerry Manuel.
New show. Same old Francesa.
