July 7, 2016 I remember, in 1988, after the Mets had owned the
Dodgers in the regular season, Cone made childishly
disparaging remarks about the Dodgers immediately
before his first NLCS start, and of course, the Dodgers
ate him up in that start. Later, with the Dodgers up 3
games to 2, Cone pitched a complete game victory giving
up only one run. In other words, Cone was Cone. Had
Cone only kept his mouth shut, we might have never
gotten to that disastrous game seven. He was one of
the greatest pitchers in our franchise: how did they
ever let him go in his prime?
Also, can anyone tell me the date of his famous pinch-hit?
July 15, 2016 When he was with the Mets, I gave him the name "TOO MUCH EATER" but then again the Orange and Blue has always had big boned hurlers (El Sid. Bartolo Colon etc). As for his love of donuts, he could have been the prototype for Homer Simpson.
