From Mike Mazzeo:
"Not bad for a bunch of chickens," Nick Swisher joked after the Yankees' 6-5 victory.Always fun when the Mets (or any team) talks shit while in the process of losing 5 out of 6.... And here's one final note on the whole Francisco nonsense; the idiot is now on the DL with with a left oblique strain.
How long had Swisher been saving that one?
"I don't know. Maybe for a little bit," said Swisher, who delivered a 423-foot, three-run home run off R.A. Dickey to give the Yankees a 4-0 lead in the third inning.
So did the win have special meaning, given that Mets closer Frank Francisco had called the Yankees "chickens" before the series began?
"I don't really care about what other people say," said Robinson Cano, who blasted the game-winning, 440-foot bomb off Miguel Batista in the eighth. "You gotta go out there and play the game."
