We here at Bleeding Yankee Blue LOVE David Cone. He’s a smart baseball guy. I love that he’s in the booth, but dare I say, I’d love to see him as a manager one day. He has what it takes. I’ve always said that. No idea if that’s in the back of his mind, but it should be.
With all this stuff going on with the baseball season being in jeopardy and now a dispute with the union, Cone has a solution, because both sides are just not budging and it’s getting late early as Yogi used to say. Steve Serby of the New York Post writes:
“…the sides should meet back in the middle on an 82-game season with an expanded 14-team playoffs to get the ball rolling on a deal.
‘I would say a fair number would be somewhere in the 82-game region,’ Cone said. ‘If I was the commissioner that’s where I would try to start the conversation.’”
