Listen To Mike Francesca’s Epic Rant About The Slumping New York Mets (Audio)
The New York Mets got off to a really hot start this year, thanks in part to the stellar play of David Wright and stellar pitching of R.A. Dickey. However, anyone who happened to take a look at the rest of their roster would have noticed that it was composed of a bunch of guys nobody outside the Mets organization had ever heard of.
Kirk Nieuwenhuis? Lucas Duda? Justin Turner? Jordany Valdespin? If you had told me this was the starting lineup of the National Lacross League’s Rochester Knighthawks, I probably would have believed you.
So it’s hardly surprising that the Mets have gone into a tailspin, winning just 2 of their last 16 games. And it’s also not surprising the the notoriously pugnacious New York sports media has been ripping into the team during this spell of awful baseball in Queens. However, nobody has ripped into them like Mike Francesca, formerly of the syndicated Mike and the Mad Dog program.
Now obviously, sports radio talk show hosts aren’t exactly known for their calm, rational perspectives. But even for those blowhards, this rant from Francesca you’re about to hear is classic. So have a listen and be glad you’re not a Mets fan…unless you are, in which case, I’m sorry.
