Absolutely destroys the New York Mets in what is probably he greatest, funniest rant of all time. 


This is MUST (can't stress this enough) listen. 

Too funny. He is a legend at his craft.

Francesa is very much like "breaking wind" if it don't stink then it's just a blast of hot air !

People knock him for things he has done in the past and rightfully so because even if he is correct, that attitude and tone of voice is not acceptable as a professional radio broadcaster.

Regardless, in this situation he hit it directly on the head. People like to get upset when the Yankees lose but in comparion with other teams, we are so fortunate.

In a day and age where winning is extremely difficult and players are still cheating around the league (Yankees possibly as well) the Yankees are fortunate for the playoff run they have been on these many many years and will continue to go on. 

Francesa with this rant made me see that even though our own grass may not be green, it's still a pretty nice lawn. While far from perfect, a ton of other teams would kill to be in the spot the Yankees are in right now. 

Now let's rebound in Cleveland!

This is also the YES board. francesa show is broadcasted on the YESchannel..

It also takes 2 weeks for someone to see/ reply to anything on a sub sectioned forum.

Hence why this is in the most active, most clicked Yankees forum.

I have no problem with the thread, and Francesa has some good points. But he is a very arrogant guy, who is wrong so often yet never admits it. He cuts off callers who disagree with him when they make a good argument. He may also be the worst interviewer in sports. WFAN needs some new hosts from 5am - 7pm weekdays, they are all awful.

Nice Francesa!!   My Mets family and coworkers are getting ready for NFL season.  Additionally with Red sox having a subpar season, Met fans cannot even look forward to Boston taking Yankees down.  All in all this is a depressing year for Met fans.

Francesa has learned that raising his voice raises his ratings.

Most times his "outrage" is just a schtick.
