      From the late 1980s to early 1990s, David Cone was the de facto ace of the Mets pitching rotation loaded with great talents like Dwight Gooden, Frank Viola, Sid Fernandez, and Ron Darling I fondly remember that Cone s explosive stuff and dynamic pitching style among such colorful pitching staff in part drew me into the Queens, not Bronx, side of New York baseball To a Mets fan it was sad to see Cone getting embraced by the wrong side with which he himself has eventually identified deepe From the [...]

      If you have ever watched a Yankee game on the YES Network, then David Cone s baseball intelligence will come as no surprise to you His wit and accumen translate seamlessly from the broadcast booth to this book, and the reader really feels like they re talking shop with Coney one on one the whole way through.I enjoyed the general chronology of his career threaded in with various anecdotes and lessons From setting the record straight on some of those crazy Mets years to recounting the magical ru I [...]

      First let me state a couple of things First I am a diehard Yankees fan from the 1970 s and second I debated giving this book a 4 star rating because of what I got from this book which I personally was a little disappointed with I would consider this book a partial biography even though it does cover Mr Cones career from he was first with Toronto, his time with the hard living Mets featuring Keith Hernandez and the boys on to the Yankees and eventually with the despised Boston Red Sox When I Firs [...]
