GOOD NIGHT SWEET PRINCE
More from Lee:
Baseball Prospectus’s Will Carroll has just informed me that David Cone has scheduled a press conference for this afternoon, to announce his retirement.
With John Franco being activated, I guess Cone thought this would be the right time to step away. I’m sure he’ll give a hell of a press conference later today—honest and heartfelt.
Roger Angell has another chapter to write. I just wonder if George will take Cone back this year, or if he’ll make him wait til’ next year.
