MIKE'D UP FRANCESA ON THE FAN
Mike came out swinging this morning about the new Yankee Stadium. Mike believes that something must be done on this road trip. Maybe they can put some gaffer's tape on the openings in the stadium to slow down the wind. Maybe they can rope of the Jeffrey Maier seating section to move back the wall. In any case, this is all a smoke screen for Mike. He's making a big fuss about this to deflect any criticism of Wang and the Yankee bullpen. He downplayed Wang's ineffectiveness and said the Yankee should 'come up with an injury' so they can DL him. "No one checks these things," he told us in making a case for summoning a strained muscle. Nice, Mike. Let's encourage cheating. Besides Maier and the Swipe, is that really the Yankee way.
MAD DOG UNLEASHED
I expected Dog to come out and spend a lot of time on the offensive propensities of the new Yankee Stadium. Instead, Dog is doing the NBA today. Snore. He said that he was going to 'catch us up' on Citi Field later in the show because that's where he was this Saturday. Aren't you a little late to the party Chris? I know they banned your show from there, but couldn't you have made an earlier trip? The highlight so far was when some guy asked for his analysis of the Rangers/Capitals series. It ceases to amaze me that over the years, even on the Fan, people would call up to ask hockey questions of both Chris and Mike. Are you paying attention people? That's not their bag, baby.
