Could free agent Adam Ottavino strike Babe Ruth out? He seems to think so. But New York Yankees great David Cone is looking at this hypothetical matchup from a different angle. Cone isn’t necesarilly denying that Ottavino would strike Ruth out. But the former Cy Young Award winner also thinks that Ruth, the pitcher, would strike Ottavino out. We never thought we’d see a rivalry brew between two men born more than 90 years apart. But here we are. Cone does have a point. Ruth did strike...
