Mets closer Frank Francisco made headlines last week for calling the Yankees chickens in advance of this weekend's Subway Series. "I can't wait to face those chickens," Francisco told The New York Post. "I want to strike out the side against them. I've done it before."
In addition to creating plenty of fodder for New York sports radio, the chicken comments inspired some fun clubhouse antics. In response to the comments, pitcher Tim Byrdak brought a real chicken, named Little Jerry Seinfeld, into the Mets' clubhouse following Friday night's win.
Brydak tweeted the following video to introduce Little Jerry Seinfield to the world.
