Reports out of…the infamous NY Post say that the YES Network is in contract negotiations with a one David Cone about filling Joe Girardi’s vacancy on the network (which means he would call about 50 games in ’08). Also, David Justice will take on a reduced role this yr with YES while he rebuilds his home in Southern Cali that was destroyed by the wildfires (and rebuilds his reputation destroyed by the Mitchell Report!).
So this all begs the question…When will Luis Sojo be joining his boy Coney in the booth?!?!
While I think Cone would do a great job in the booth as he smokes five packs of cigarettes before the Seventh Inning Stretch, the guy I really want to see in there is David Wells. I can’t even begin to imagine some of the stuff that would come out of his mouth as he chugs $10 Yankee Stadium Budweisers next to Michael Kay and Ken Singleton.
