    He was in Legends today, too. Started an autograph session a half-hour before game time, and there was a long line to see him so I let him be, and just took a peek.

    Someone needs to tell Coney that "groin" is a single syllable word.

    Did anyone hear Cone going through the pitch sequence after the Pena grand slam? They were going through it when suddenly they go to CC pitching to the next batter, and Cone was still in analyst mode and got confused for a moment. It was pretty funny.

    During yesterday's 100th anniversary of Fenway game, Kay got to talking about how Caroline Kennedy had thrown out the first pitch (from the stands, not the mound), and Cone said she'd called him last week:

    CONE: She wanted me to go to Central Park and help her play catch. I've known Caroline from meeting Lorne Michaels and David Wells at a dinner several years ago. She was looking for a pitching coach, Michael, and I was going to oblige her, but then she called me back the other night and said, "Well, it's only going to be a five-foot throw, so I guess I don't need your services."

    SINGLETON: You were going to teach her a slider or something?

    CONE: I was going to give her some pointers, go and play catch with her in Central Park.

    KAY: That's an unbelievable story that you just slipped on me. Caroline Kennedy called you to play catch in Central Park?

    CONE: She wanted me to be her personal pitching coach.

    KAY: Wow!

    CONE: And of course, I agreed, I said, sure, I'll meet you right there.

    KAY: Well, the amazing part of the story is that you actually picked up the phone when somebody called. That's the shocker. You're a tough guy to get hold of.

    CONE: You're no Caroline Kennedy.

    I'm pretty sure that Jackie O and John Jr. were Mets fans. I've seen a lot of old photos of them at Shea as well as John Jr. attending alone.

    JFK jr was at the Braves vs Yankees game 24 hours before he died on Friday July 16th 1999.

    http://www.cnn.com/ALLPOLITICS/time/....last.day.html

    the all star game was Tuesday July 13th
    the Yankees and Braves started a very weird Thursday, Friday, and Saturday 3 game series.
    and then the Expos came in to start their series on Sunday the 18th
    of course Cone pitched his perfect game on that Sunday on Yogi Berra day.

    on Sunday, Bob Shepard asked for a moment of silence for JFK jr. as by that time even though they had not found his body or the plane, it was almost certain he was dead.

    I once got a quick hello with JFK jr in Central Park around 1990.
    he was near the reservoir and I recognized him walking alone towards me one afternoon.
    he realized I recognized him and he gave me a quick nod and a hey as we passed each other.
    his mother lived on 85th street and 5th avenue.
    his sister also lives close by Central Park, hence the invite to Cone to practice there.

    That's right-- I forgot about that.

    I wonder if the Sox invited him to the Fenway celebration thing-- he was already there, he could have come down on the field.

    He talked about being the opposing pitcher in Mike Mussina's near-perfecto at Fenway in 2001. If Moose had only been able to retire that rat Carl Everett, Cone would have been involved in the last two perfect games pitched to that point, the first time as the winning pitcher and the second time as losing pitcher.

    I remember that game like it was yesterday. Cone pitched a heck of a game that day, too. It was scoreless until the top of the ninth, when the Yankees managed to score a single lousy run (unearned, at that) off of Coney. (Enrique Wilson, of all people, got the RBI.)

    And Moose was one STRIKE away from a perfect game when he lost it.

    There's a good recap here: http://www.nytimes.com/2001/09/03/sp...one-pitch.html

    I never liked Carl Everett before that game, so you can imagine my thoughts after seeing him acting like a fool on first base. I always thought Cone was secretly rooting for Mike to get the perfecto after the top of the 9th. BTW - I sorta got even with Everett during a road trip to Cleveland in 2002. He was with the Rangers then and they were the next team in at the hotel after the Yankees. A couple of Texas players stopped at the lounge and he was one of them. I had already gone up to my room when one of my buddies called to tell me he was sitting 15 feet away from them. They told me to put on my #35 jersey and get back down there. I rearranged the chairs at our table so that my back was facing him. It took awhile, but he finally noticed. I could see his reflection in the mirrored glass, so when he turned to look, I raised my arm and gave him the ol' "half-a-peace sign" without turning around.

    Mike later said that after that game, the fans in Boston seemed to appreciate what he was almost able to do and they weren't nearly as hostile to him while he was warming up in the pen from then on. Before that, he said he heard "a lot of original stuff".

    Of Phil Hughes' pre-first-pitch routine, Cone commented today: "Not exactly Tebowing out there, but pretty close."

    It's such a treat to have just Cone and Singleton in the booth for the Kansas City series every year. Does anyone else notice that the broadcast is much less on edge with these two? It makes for a much more pleasant viewing experience without Michael Kay giving the color guy the third degree every game.

    As a sidenote, Cone is one of the very few pro athletes about whom I haven't heard a single negative story when it comes to interacting with fans. I'm so happy the YES Network has him. I love that he has a sense of humor about himself that comes through on the broadcasts too. I heard an interview with him on the Michael Kay Show from around this time last year; Michael referenced the supposed impending end of the world on 5/21/11 and Coney started joking about how he'd be going straight to hell.

    Cone and Singleton are by far the best. I wish they were the regular cast, Michael Kay is so damn obnoxious and loud and annoying.

    I may have asked before, but why do you think Kay still has a job? So many fans cannot stand him. I've never heard him in the booth unless there's brief clip of something, but I have my own hate agenda going. Does the network need the controversy for ratings or something?

    Because ownership likes him and Sterling and they believe you watch the Yankees for the quality of the team, not the annnouncer.

    I bet more people like him or are okay with him than dislike him. Like with most things, the people who dislike someone are going to be louder than the supporters. I definitely get why people dislike Sterling so much, but I don't get it as much with Kay. He's not Vin Scully, but I think he's generally quite competent at calling the game and isn't boring. He definitely says silly things at times, but that's going to happen with anyone who's on air for hundreds of hours every year. As a former subscriber to MLB Gameplan, I've heard a lot of different MLB announcers, and I think Kay is definitely better than most of his competition. He's flawed, certainly, and has annoying tendencies, but I don't think he's nearly flawed enough to get the hate he gets or to be fired-worthy.

    There's the rub. There is the good along with the annoying, excruciating and simply irritating. I count myself a Kay hater, but I respect his attention to detail, his knowledge of the game and players across the major leagues, and I am well aware that the league-average replacement broadcaster is considerably worse. What really fries me is that a superior product in the person of Ken Singleton is right there--superior voice, superior knowledge, and just a pleasure to listen to.

    Don't compare Kay to every idiot in the major leagues, compare him to Kenny.
