But we digress. Mike "I'm going to the Knicks / Heat game...you poor fucks will be picking up a pizza to watch at home with your unemployed parents" Francesa, yesterday on WFAN's Mike'd Up, showed exactly how out of touch he is and exactly how badly he wants his listeners to believe that he is not out of touch. Mike stated that he is confident that the Cliff Lee will not turn down the Yankees. He'd be shocked if
He was saying what any sports fan could say/think/write. But, at the very same moment, ESPN's Buster Olney was telling WEPN's Michael Kay that the Yankees brass had very little confidence that this was a done deal. Minutes later, adverb hating Brian Cashman said, "I don't feel confident, pessimistic, etc."
But Mike does.
Paul Lebowitz has taken the task of further exposing Francesa while clearly explaining why he's in that downward spiral.
"When Mike Francesa talks about the Mets, you can almost hear the desperation and crestfallen tone in his voice as he comes to grips with a management team that won't kowtow to him, nor be affected in any way by his rabble-rousing and bullying."
Now you can add the Mets to the list of teams/people outside Francesa's circle of influence that includes the Jets, any ESPN staffer, Bill Parcels, Tiger Woods, Brett Favre and Jenny Sanford.
