FanGraphs Q&A with David Cone


David Laurila of FanGraphs posted an interview with former Yankee and current YES Network analyst David Cone today … well, it’s not much of an interview really. Cone did all the talking and basically told a big story. He spoke about his development as a pitcher throughout his playing career and his love for data, something that extends into his broadcasts. It’s no secret that Cone is a personal fave in the booth, so you shouldn’t be surprised that I’m giving this RAB’s highest level of recommendation. Check it out.

    If he is interested, Cone could benefit the Yankees more in the player personnel/development side rather than merely broadcasting.

    I imagine this is exactly what sitting on a plane next to Coney would be like…

  3. The Real Eddard says:

    Cone’s the smartest analyst in the game. YES is lucky to have him.

  4. 0-Fur is Murder says:

    Just as long as he doesn’t refer to Ichiro’s bat as a chopstick :)

    Seriously, how stupid was it that people got all upset over that?
