Excellent call to Chris Russo from Bob Mantz

Here's a great call to Chris Russo from Jersey's own Bob Mantz. He calls out Russo on being critical of Johan Santana's under-performing season based on his contract — and then makes a great comparison to Russo's $1.3 million contract and his ratings. See for yourself.


  1. Chris thinks I am kidding but I would like him to split from Mike Francesa.

    And, the point of the call was Johan Santana was struggling due to his TEAM, just like Chris does with Mike during this 'crossroads'

    Writer Chris Illuminati of Philly Blurbs said this after viewing the video, "video proof that the Dog won't bark about any particulars of the rough patch he and Mike are going through."

    Neil Best, for Newsday, said after viewing the video, "I heard that live yesterday. Weird, but amusing! Thanks. Neil"

    Now appearing in Deadspin's report on the matter:

    Kevin Canessa has had the foresight of a Mike and the Mad Dog Split since this post.

    He deserves that credit!

    ps, Chris said a few days before, "And, you know, Neil Best thinks he has something and he's a good reporter and I like Neil. Again, I would never talk to him about anything like this because for whatever the reason, this is a guy who killed my book. That's sensitive to authors, and don't forget, I'm John Grisham. That's sensitive." and then added, "I've talked to him about it, but I don't forget that. He went out of his way to bury that book, same day I was on the Today show. C'mon. But listen, Neil thinks he has something, so he's going to track me down in the middle of a weekend and he's going to track Mike down in the middle of a weekend and he's going to write something."

    Call WFAN at 718.937.6666 with a 2 point question.

    Ask a sports question. Then follow up with a question directed at Dog - "So, Chris, did you really enjoy flying solo recently? Do you think the show was better solo as Bob from Cranbury pointed out last week to you?

    I'll be DVRing

  2. Kevin,

    So, you're going to support my candidacy, right?
