I'm writing a column on my conversation with YES' David Cone on Andy Pettitte. In the meantime, you can listen here.

Cone reveals how long he thinks Pettitte might play and how many games he may win this season. He also talks about the lure of coming back in the year of your 40th birthday. Cone tried it in 2003 after sitting out a season.

"There is something about spring training," Cone said. "It really gets into your system. All baseball players have this internal clock around February when it starts to kick in and the juices start to flow. I think underestimated how much I was going to miss it."
