What was Frank Francisco thinking when he called the Yankees chickens? Evidently, not too much.
Inciting the opposition makes no sense, and he wasn’t backing down this afternoon.
Francisco called the Yankees chronic complainers – MLB’s Miami Heat? – and laid into them again.
“I made a simple comment because, you know, they complain a lot — for every call, for everything,” Francisco said. “I thought it was funny. But I didn’t expect to make a big deal. Whatever.
“Now I’ve got to apologize to everybody. I mean the whole Yankee team. … No, I’m kidding. … I said what I said, and I’m not sorry. That’s what I think. I think they complain too much for everything. You guys haven’t watched the games? You guys don’t see it? Every game.”
No, it doesn’t make sense to aggravate the opposition, but you have to admire Francisco for not backing down and standing up to his comments.
