Chris Russo made back page headlines in yesterday’s paper when he called out his former partner, Mike Francesa, for going easy on Alex Rodriguez. Chris Russo admits himself that he’s “buddy buddy” with MLB commissioner Bud Selig, and spoke about how everyone in the business has their own “favorites.” Alex joined Mike in studio along with his lawyer, Jim McCarroll, fielding questions from The Sports Pope.

Alex said he “lost his mind” and “banged a table and kicked a briefcase” out of frustration when he realized that Bud Selig wasn’t coming in from Milwaukee to face him in person. He explained that it shows a lack of courage on the Selig’s behalf for handing out a 211-game suspension for something he didn’t do. Rodriguez said, “I shouldn’t serve one inning.” When asked if he used performance enhancing drugs, A-Rod simply stated, “no.”

What do you guys think? Was Mike giving A-Rod a “soft landing”?

Andy Pettitte returned this year because he had “the itch” to pitch in the major leagues again. All was going well until he took a  liner off his left ankle during a start against the Cleveland Indians back on June 27th. He had a fractured left fibula (ankle injury), which was initially supposed to keep him out for only six weeks, but that turned into 12 weeks after a few minor setbacks and a rehab program.

Pettitte pitched the first game of a day-night  double header against the Toronto Blue Jays yesterday in his return, tossing 5 scoreless frames, allowing 4 hits, 2 walks and struck  out 3 batters. He picked up the win, pushing his W-L record to (4-3) on the season. It was almost as if he never left. Whenever they seem to need a victory in a big spot, he usually delivers.


Mike Francesa had Andy on the air following yesterday’s start. When asked if he was thinking about pitching in 2013, he said, “It’s definitely a consideration now.”

Boomer and Carton break down and analyze John Sterling’s terrible call during Casey McGehee’s 2nd at-bat during last night’s game. Johnny clearly wasn’t paying attention and listening to Suzyn try to cover for him makes you want to cringe.

According to John, these four things all occurred during one swing of the bat:

1) Cuts and Misses.

2) Cuts and hits a fly ball down the left field line and the ball is foul.

3) The throw comes in and McGehee is standing on 2nd base.

4) The ball must have kicked into the stands for a “grounds rules double.”

Chris “Mad Dog” Russo reunited for a segment on Mike Francesa’s show on Radio Row in Indianapolis. It’s almost as if the two never split up. I don’t know about you guys, but I wish these guys were still back on the air together. It just seems so right.

From CBS New York:

NEW YORK (WFAN) – So much has already been said about the Yankees this off-season. Apparently, not enough. Enter Hank Steinbrenner.

Steinbrenner gave his two cents to the New York Post about what the Bombers need to do in 2011.

“We will do what we have to do to win … We have the highest payroll and the reason is we are committed to our fans to win,” Steinbrenner told the Post. “We just have to —ing win.”

Yankees general manager Brian Cashman made waves on Tuesday morning during his “Breakfast with a Champion” appearance with Mike Francesa. According to Cashman, Joba Chamberlain will not return to the starting rotation, instead the fiery reliever will remain in the bullpen.

“I’m really happy with our bullpen,” Steinbrenner said. “I think Chamberlain is going to come back and have a big year.”

There’s the Steinbrenner voice we all know and love. Hank is Back!

This post is dedicated to a man who once said he would give back one of his children if he could witness a Giants World Series Championship. After 51 long years, Chris “Mad Dog” Russo finally got it. After the last out of the Fall Classic was recorded, I know a lot of New Yorkers who were dedicated listeners to the “Mike and the Mad Dog” show thought about what was going through Russo’s mind. Sirius XM Radio wouldn’t let Russo go on with Mike yesterday on WFAN, so this is the best we can do. From Neil Nest of Newsday:

Mike Francesa said he invited Chris Russo to open the WFAN show today but that Sirius XM did not permit Russo to come on. “I was gonna do Mike today. Then I thought about it and I said that’s not fair to the folks who employ me now, to the folks who bought the subscription. I didn’t feel that was fair to do anything but here first. I love Mike. It’s got nothing to do with that. I just felt for here, this is where I’ve got to be first.”

 “I never would have thought I ever would have seen it.”

This comes in from Sweeny Murti of WFAN:

“Burnett moved to Tuesday. Felt back stiffness/spasms yesterday. “Much improved today” said Girardi.”

Dustin Moseley will make the start tonight against The Boston Red Sox.
