Yankees pregame: Chicken is the main course

Posted by: Brian Heyman - Posted in Misc on Jun 22, 2012 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

Brian Heyman here for Chad tonight at Citi Field for Game 1 of this Subway Series II. Much of the pregame talk was about Frank Francisco calling the Yankees “chickens” in the New York Post, as in “I can’t wait to face those chickens.”

The reactions varied.

“What kind of chicken?” A-Rod said. “Organic?”

Derek Jeter, who made the Post cover with his head placed on top of a chicken, saw the paper. The Captain said: “I can’t be insulted by something I don’t understand.”

The Mets closer followed up today be explaining that he thinks the Yankees complain about too many calls. Maybe chicken wasn’t the right word then. But a few chicken companies called the Yankees looking to sponsor the Subway Series.

Nick Swisher tried not to say what he really felt, even walking away at the end. But he did admit about the cover display: “I didn’t think that was too funny.”

“I don’t even know that dude. I don’t think he knows us. Those are some big words.”

Joe Girardi said it only matters what happens on the field. Terry Collins said Francisco might be under more pressure if he gets in tonight.

“We’ll see if we’re chicken when he gets in the game,” Russell Martin said.

Collins didn’t appear thrilled with Francisco’s chicken comment.

“I don’t think you need to stir up the pot when you play these guys,” Collins said. “They’re good enough already.”

Update, 6:43: It just started pouring here.

Update, 7:28: They’re pulling the tarp off the field. First pitch is set for 8 p.m.

    Collins better remember that he stirred the pot earlier this week
    with his comments.
    I like what Martin had to say and what Swisher had to say.
    We all know Jeter is not going to say anything remotely close to what
    those 2 said.
    Sometimes I get bored with Jeter’s answers, but at this point in his career, there is nothing
    else to expect from him.

    So according to Francisco the Yankees are chicken huh??!!!

    Let’s see who the chicken is after tonight…In Spanish is Gallina…Meaning some kind of a coward…I don’t take those comments lightly, a drilling should be in order to remind him who the chicken is…I think we sweep them

  3. yankeefeminista June 22nd, 2012 at 6:07 pm

    Bush league (yawn).

  4. J. Alfred Prufrock June 22nd, 2012 at 6:07 pm

    “I can’t be insulted by something I don’t understand,” and people say Jete never says anything, to speak of dry wits :D.

    This “chicken” thing is actually good for Yanks. They might have slept their way through these three games, but now, it’s a moral ought to show the Mets just how irrelevant they are.

  5. jackamir June 22nd, 2012 at 6:08 pm

    Pitch around David Wright and you have a AAA lineup and even Wright is not very clutch…

  6. m June 22nd, 2012 at 6:08 pm

    Frank Francisco? Who’s that? :?

    It’s unfair to characterize the Yankees as complainers. You don’t see the tantrums and histrionics you see from players on other teams. The Yankees usually have a word with the umpire on the way back to the mound, but there’s no crying.

  7. yankeefeminista June 22nd, 2012 at 6:08 pm

    Luis, lol. Poor sad Mets. The true gallinas. Sori owns! :)

    Speaking of…do you guys think it was bush league of Davey Johnson to squeal on the Rays pitcher that got busted for pine tar in his glove?

  12. Triple Short of a Cycle June 22nd, 2012 at 6:13 pm

    Collins now Francisco yet people on this site continue to root for the Mets. Mind Boggling

    ————————————————————————————————————–
    I think Davey did the right thing. I also firmly believe if the roles were reversed, Maddon and the majority of MLB managers would have done the same.
    I have no problem with what Johnson did.
    The goal is to win the game. He knew of something that might have helped his team win the game and he executed the plan. Nothing wrong with that.
    Peralta deserves 8 games!

  15. Yank 97 June 22nd, 2012 at 6:16 pm

    What did Collins say about the Yanks?

  16. luis June 22nd, 2012 at 6:17 pm

    Hi JAP and YF!

    I am not laughing…That”s a very bad insult around this parts… And Francisco knows it….it wasn’t directed to me and i got mad…I don’t know what this Collins is preaching to this guys, but it isn’t good…It shows what a classless organization those Muts are….They deserve to be as irrelevant as they are.

    Sorry for the rant

  17. m June 22nd, 2012 at 6:19 pm

    WTP,

    I have no doubt that DB Maddon would have done the same.

    But if “half the pitchers” are doing it as Maddon claims, then it was bush league.

    On the other hand, I like seeing cheaters get busted. No one to blame but themselves. Maybe Peralta should have used a different glove for that series?

    A: Because he was a Yankee and he needed to get over to Citifield to kick Met butt.

    Yup, but being so close to each other, I thought that something good would rub this guys. They have no clue about how to be a fair and gallant competitor. Now I understand their stupid decision of not letting Scranton play close to Citifield, only an organization with no sense of “class” and “honor” would do such a thing. I sure hope that we stomp real bad this guys in this series and the future ones for years to come.

    Well in case anyone was sleepwalking, this certainly will wake them.

    GOOD ON YA, YA DOPE FRANCISCO!

    Actually, he probably just doesn’t know any better. It happens.

  43. J. Alfred Prufrock June 22nd, 2012 at 6:44 pm

    Yankeefem, Johnson probably hurt his hamstring swinging from his heels… I didn’t even realize Farnham was stil with us. I remember he was a C that went on a power spree a few years ago, and then sort of disappeared, or got hurt, or I don’t know what. Higgie has a nice approach at the plate…

    I remember in 2004 when Gordon said the Red Sox strut around like they’re champions, not like the Yankees “we” behave like real champions, or something to that effect. I was just so p i s s e d. I’m sure Jeter and Po and Mo read him the riot act and asked him how many Yankee championship teams he was on and how they managed to miss him on the roster.

    I’m of the “shut up and play” school, unless the situation is a special case. I also never liked that sand bagging Torre used to get into, kissing Boston b u t t and not backing up his own players. Jeter handles it best, because he’s a put up or shut up guy, always has been. Francisco isn’t going to get his attention.

    MTU,

    Unfortunately The movie is not even on the up coming releases in Venezuela. Saw the trailer and is directed by Riddley Scott, so it must be very good. I loved Blade Runner, Crusade and Gladiator from him. I think he directed Alien as well, one of my favorite sci fi movies ever

    As a prequel, you did not really need to see Alien to understand prometheus, and it isn’t really a direct prequel, just a ‘spiritual prequel’ that takes place in the same universe. I’d say your misunderstanding is either user error or due to some of the problems with the movie.

    Though I enjoyed it overall, it wasn’t as good as Alien or Aliens. Visuals were great though.

  96. m June 22nd, 2012 at 7:38 pm

    The review fir Prometheus said it was a gorgeous film, but not to be compared to Aliens (not as good). But two if my kids loved the movie, either because it was really good or because they never saw Aliens.

    That opening scene from Aliens is still one of the biggest “Oh! SHT!!” moments I’ve ever seen in a movie.

    Alien or Aliens? Which scene.

  98. m June 22nd, 2012 at 7:41 pm

    The original one with S. Weaver.

    The one showing all the pods? It’s really quiet and then…!

    Ive never seen any of the Alien or PRedator movies. I wanted to see Prometheus bc I had no idea it had anything to do with another movie franchise.

    Of course, I was a lot younger. Tho u prolly weren’t even born yet. :P

    But everyone else in the theater jumped out of their seats, too. Haha.

    I didnt finish that thought. I guess I shouldnt bother seeing Prometheus, then?

    JF-

    I know that it is not a direct prequel… the way it was described to me is almost simultaneous to alien but two things going on in different universes/areas.

    A lot of it I’m sure was my error. I liked the science and a lot of the visuals were really amazing but I’m not a huge science fiction guy nor have I seen a ton of science fiction movies… a little out of my element.

    I agree w JF.

    Really good visuals but not as good as “Alien”.

    I’d give it a “B”.

    Speaking of movie openings, I like the one with James Bond and Jaws sky diving.

    Unless you are a huge sci-fi guy, I’d see it on dvd or netflix.

    Prometheus takes place about ~30 years before Alien

    We can’t stand another off day. Let’s play ball! Is that salacious? Thanks, JAP.

    I haven’t seen Alien so I’m sure you’re right. Like I said, I’m not a big sci-fi guy but the visuals were great and I’m always a sucker for science. Just certain scenes in the movie made me scratch my head and missed the mark in my opinion.

    Channel 9 is back on Yankees pregame.

    Well timing is everything!

    Unless a game thread appears, I guess this is it.

    Yea, probably more the movies fault than you. There were some shaky reasoning behind some things.

    Seeing Promethius in 3D IMAX was pretty cool for me. First time for an IMAX experience. The Audio was rocking.. But I agree about the movie being ok, and not as good.

  115. bruceb June 22nd, 2012 at 11:37 pm

    Could be worse…we could be Marlins fans.
