“I can’t wait to face those chickens,” Mets closer Frank Francisco told The Post when asked about playing the Yankees in this weekend’s Subway Series at Citi Field.

I guess if you get swept, that makes you a bunch of turkeys, then? :dunno:

For the record:
In 25 career games against the Yankees, Francisco boasts a 3.29, but has more blown saves (3) than he has recorded saves (2). He's also allowed 34 base runners in 27.1 innings, and has given up four HRs. (From www.sportsmedia101.com (http://s.tt/1fuiu))

Yeah, but he's not a chicken. Just very bad.

When I first seen this I was thinking, "Why in the world would Cervelli say that?"

Guess he's trying to put a bit of a spark somewhere, huh? I wonder what else could have prompted this. Was he kidding? I'd love to know the context. Or is it exactly what it appears?

Why say something this stupid when the Yanks didnt do anything but sweep them the last time. I love it, incite the Yanks and hopefully they can beat the crap out of the Mets again.

Francisco should shut up and sit down -- oh that's right; he can't. He doesn't have a chair.

The Yanks are chickens and Fransisco is a bullfrog.

At the point that photo was taken, it was probably entertaining as anything to watch. You really can't draw any conclusions from a moment in time snapshot.


But yes, Francisco appears to be quite a moron.

seriously though, is there a reason he used the word "chickens" or his lexicon that poor?

The Yankees showed real cowardice in sweeping them a couple weeks ago.

If I remember correctly, the "poor" woman pictured in that photo and her husband were heckling Doug Brocail about his stillborn child. Doesn't make what Francisco did right, I'm just saying that there were multiple pieces of trash involved in addition to Franky Frank.

No chicken in our clubhouse. Best check up north in the Massachusetts area if that's what he's looking for.

Then again, if were a bunch of chickens, and they're a bunch of chokers, I'm not so sure I want to be around for what ensues.

I saw parts of Girardi's pre-game press conference. Jason Zillo told Girardi that three different chicken companies have called his office with sponsorship opportunities for the Subway Series.

From earlier today:


Rafael Soriano just walked by some reporters in the clubhouse and said, "What's up chicken?" as he walked by.

You know it's somewhat of a ridiculous situation when it causes Soriano of all people to crack a joke.

In the wake of Frank Francisco's comments about the Yankees being chickens, practical joker Tim Byrdak apparently decided to have some fun.

Byrdak revealed via Twitter that he bought a live chicken in Chinatown. He then shared video of the bird inside the Mets' clubhouse at Citi Field. He confirmed to ESPNNewYork.com the authenticity of his practical joke.

Of course, Byrdak now needs to find a home for the chicken.

"Does anyone live on a farm that could take a chicken off my hands?" Byrdak pleaded. "Don't want to see him get whacked. Please help."

When there's one team that's on another team's mind to no one, and that they can never seem to beat that team, then there's only one cure: get the fanboys involved, since they've got nothing else to turn to.

Had he said "chicken sh!t", then he'd need a mirror.

I see the tough guy is "day to day" with a left oblique injury." He will not be available Sunday against the Yankees. :P

So what do you call a team that loses 5 out of 6 games to a bunch of chickens?

I am so glad the games are over. Enough about Dickey and chickens. Now we can move on to serious business. Although I did get a kick out of that fan with the "Dickey is Sickey" t-shirt on. He could not have been a bigger tool on national television. I thank him for the entertainment. I wish there was an avi of it so I can post it whenever someone is being a tool.

I was cracking up at Tim Kurkjian on ESPN talking about this yesterday. Apparently, the first couple of establishments they went to wouldn't give them a live chicken due to "issues with exorcism". The Mets named the chicken "Jeter", but David Wright didn't like that. :lol:

yeah, I think they named it Jeter first and then changed it to Little Jerry Seinfeld which I thought was funny...also thought it was funny when Jeter asked about his head on a chicken that he said he's been portrayed worse in the paper. :D

Chicken Sh!t

I guess that every hopeless creature gets thrown a bone every now and then, but in their case, very infrequently done.

I understand competitiveness, and maybe he was trying to fire up his team. But by my measuring stick, this stupid comment was unprofessional. I hate that, and personally have no respect for it.
