Former New York Mets catcher Mike Piazza is the butt of a joke from the latest in a long line of prank callers to Mike Francesa’s show. But the joke’s on YES Network, which didn’t dump out of Francesa’s rebuttal to the caller.

The presence of prank callers on Mike Francesa’s WFAN/New York radio show is starting to rival that of the Steve Urkel character on the show “Family Matters”: what was rare when he first hosted the show solo in 2008 has suddenly become an everyday occurrence.

On today’s edition, “Nick from Bohemia” sounded like a genuine caller, starting with a valid point about the Mets. But then he focused on former Mets catcher Mike Piazza, who once again addressed rumors that he was gay, as he is set to release a new autobiography.

That provided fodder for “Nick’s” crank call.

“Do you think if it does come out that he is gay, that he’d be, the, ugh, you know, the best homosexual catcher we’ve ever seen?”

Francesa’s answer: “I would think he would be the best homosexual catcher. I would agree with that, yeah.”

It was a modest reaction to a prank call – either that, or he, like the Mets, has no clue what a “creampie” is:

While that entire call was heard on the radio, the censors at YES Network pulled out a bit too early, dumping out of the caller’s entire question, but not Francesa’s response:

Could you imagine the conversation between YES Network president Tracy Dolgin and the network censors over this?

“You let Mike Francesa say the word ‘homosexual’ on our air.”

“Did I do that?”
