If the Cardinals win the World Series this year, people will talk about how they have one of the lowest regular season win totals for a team that won a ring – and, that will lead some to mention the 2000 Yankees (who won a ring while only winning 87 games in the regular season).
But, when it comes to the 2000 Yankees, how much was that win total a reflection on the overall team? Six years ago, I addressed this question.
Therefore, I hope, should talk of the 2000 Yankees come up after this World Series, people remember the fact that David Cone was the reason why that team only won 87 games in 2000. Well, Cone and Torre – because Joe kept running him out there.
