The All-Time Greatest Mike Francesa Prank Calls

4. Joba = Elite?

You have to be shocked that Francesa did not go into cardiac arrest in the midst of this one.

“Andy Pettitte is a stahting pitchah!!”

A caller tried to claim that Joba Chamberlain — in 2009 — had one of the best ERAs in the league when inserted into the starting rotation, and Mike was not about to have it.

When he compared his performance to that of potential Hall-of-Famer Andy Pettitte, he lost it.


Evidently, this was a get-under-your-skin motive for the caller. He succeeded greatly.
