    Re: The David Cone said what? Thread

    David Cone really pounds the theme that nowadays, rookies don't get taken to task enough. He was talking about Joba getting stunned with the homerun and saying reminiscing about the first big hit he gave up and how he hung his head, etc., and the guys in the Met clubhouse jumped all over him. He said you don't see that nowaday and that today young players seem to have a sense of entitlement. This is the second time in a week that I heard that - in different words coming from Andy Pettitte last week and now Coney. Interesting.

    I'd rather listen to Cone than that idiot Kaye.

    Kay was (extra) nauseating tonight. All of a sudden he's Sigmund Freud discussing Joba. Well, maybe not all of a sudden - he loves to assign emotions, meanings, and all types of subtexts to situations and people based on his own feelings. He's such a fishwife!

    He said that the 1990's were over two decades ago. We're getting to the 2010's but not yet.

    I noticed that too, but it some instance he's right. But I don't think its the fault of the young players. I think its the fans & media fault. Joba's been a Yankee 20 minutes but if you didn't know better you'd think HE was the captain of the Yanks. The worshipping and heralding that went on last year was ridiculous.

    Could Cone or Kay have made WHIP any more clear?

    How about just saying "WHIP is how many base runners you average per inning. If your WHIP is 1.5, you allow 1.5 base runners per inning."

    Well, people who don't know what WHIP is also probably think that OPS is derived from some newfangled formula.

    Cone is really great as a commentator, because he is very insightful into what the pitchers and batters are thinking and their strategy. The other commentary always struck me as a little dumbed down, and talking without imparting any useful information. I love Cone being on YES, great commentary. ESPN and FOX, though, their commentary is awful, like watching some kind of very tacky reality tv show, their commentary is basically useless and annoying. Actually some of the best commentary is on the radio, but I've had trouble lately finding which AM station it's on, anybody know?

    Re: The David Cone said what? Thread

    I just saw the Yankee replay of today's game and again, I find David Cone very interesting but also very critical. I'm sure it's just frankness but he really says some very unflattering things, albeit, they are often true. He also seems to insinuate that The Yankee clubhouse is not a very good one (as a matter of fact he just about outright says it). He doesn't trash it but he seems to go out of his way to point out how great the Yankee clubhouse was back in his day and several times has emphasized how great other teams' clubhouses seem, i.e. Cleveland and Boston. He is very insightful and I enjoy his commentary but it does tick me off that he is a bit too critical of The Yankees - collectively and individually. He may be right but it still annoys me.

    I appreciate such commentary because I'm too old and cynical to accept the lumps of everything is great in the Yankee universe. Furthermore, something tells me that the suits at YES wants this kind of commentary and not some "Homer BS" Yankee fans are too used to hearing from their announcers.
    Is this the end of the Brian Cashman era?

    I like Cone's honesty. He's a good listen, IMHO. Pairing him with Flaherty is a nice duo.

    I thought of this thread when he said that. He didn't saying anything for a minute after that because I'm sure he realized how it sounded.

    Yikes, I missed that!

    I'm used to Michael Kay - I liked him better on the radio with Sterling, but like someone said, he's an idiot, but he's our idiot - I hear his voice and I think of summer and baseball.

    I can't talk objectively about Paul O'Neill, but I do enjoy hearing him and I think he'd get better if he did more games - he was really stiff when he started and he's definitely gotten better.

    I think Cone is very entertaining and also getting better as he goes along.

    I like Flaherty - he's not the most "entertaining" guy, but he knows baseball and he does a good job.

    Leiter gets on my nerves sometimes - I'm not sure what it is exactly, but he can be annoying (to me).

    Singleton is as good as it gets, and I definitely miss Kaat.

    Did he give (or imply) any reasons for the Yankee clubhouse not being great? Just curious.

    All right, I'm listening to the replay of tonight's game (don't ask me why) and Singleton is discussing Giambi's hitting propensities. And I just heard him say "Giambi doesn't swing that way."

    Re: The David Cone said what? Thread

    David sounds a tad protective of his own teams - give me a break about the chemistry. Unless he spends all of his time there (like he obviously did as a player), I really don't think he's qualified to judge what's going on their now. It's annoying that he thinks that any non-late 90's, early 00's Yankees team has bad chemistry. I'm not going to take him seriously on that at all.

    Oh and how much time does he spend with the Indians and Sox to judge how great their chemistry is?

    I love Coney and I enjoy listening to him........but on this? I think I'll take a pass.
