Mike Francesa 5:29PM: "They're very different stadiums"
Gman pointed this out to me last week and he couldn't have been more on the money. Mike is going to use this phrase about 1,000 times this year comparing the two new ballparks. The professor told us that one is majestic, while the other is cozy. Mikey hasn't seen enough of each park yet to fully give his verdict. But "they're different stadiums." Mike did note that the Mets "tricked" up their field, by raising the height of the walls and the little angle in right center. The Yanks of course would never do such a thing. Mike hasn't watched a Yanks game on TV, so he can't get too crazy about the problem with the nets at Yankee Stadium. The professor did tell us that the Bombers did build a separate media entrance, while the Mets did not. But according to Mike, the fans don't care about that. Apparently Mike does though because he felt the need to mention it (now he doesn't have to interact with the masses when he enters the park). But listening to Mike try to politically balance describing the two Stadiums, you can't stop but think he considers himself THE final voice on the matter. He will continue to hold court all season long and once he has gathered all the research, he will issue his final verdict. After all, he is professuh Francesauhh.
