NEW YORK (WFAN) — During the Yankees-Rays game this past Saturday, YES Network commentator and former Yankees and Mets pitcher David Cone may have let a swear word slip out while on the air.
In the second inning of the game, Cone and fellow commentator Michael Kay were discussing Red Sox slugger David Ortiz’s recent dugout eruption, in which he smashed a bullpen phone with a bat. It was during Cone’s analysis of the incident when an “F-bomb” was allegedly dropped into the description of pieces of phone flying everywhere.
Cone chatted with WFAN co-hosts Boomer Esiason and Craig Carton on Monday morning to give his first-hand account of what happened in the broadcast booth.
“Will you acknowledge that by mistake you did drop the ‘F-bomb’ on TV?” Carton asked the former ace.
