    From Phil Mushnick from the New York Post on October 25, 2010-

    "First things first: Before the Yankees can make roster changes, ownership must decide whether to bring back Mike Francesa as general manager and manager, no?"

    I want to hear what Alderson has to say after Francesser asks him about the comments he made about the Jayson Werth contract.

    What did he say about the Werth contract? And I hope Alderson slaps Mike in the face, not cus I care that he's been talking shit about the Mets for the last couple weeks but because it would be really funny if Mike got slapped.

    Unprompted, Alderson mocked Washington for making that deal. He basically called it an asinine contract.

    I think Alderson should have kept his mouth shut.

    I heard the second part of it where he was trying to re-explain the term. It was weird. I couldn't figure out why he was spending a few minutes going over the definition of a word. Then I read the Mushnick column and found out the reason.

    I hope there is a YouTube clip at some point for this Mets fan who called at 5:15 today. What a moron. He said the Mets are an exciting team and a great franchise. He was also unaware that the Yankees won the World Series in 2009.

    The caller, Rich from Hackensack if I recall correctly, said that the Yankees haven't won a World Series since they beat the Mets. Francesser then asked the guy if he was out of the country for a while. He told the caller that the Yankees won the World Series in 2009. The caller replied, "They did?" Then Francesa pushed the button and that was the end of the geek.

    Yeah I mean come on that's ridiculous. Why would you waste your time calling up to talk about a sport you clearly couldn't give two shits about.
