David Cone calls Ichiro’s bat a ‘chopstick’

Cy Young Award winner and current Yankees TV analyst David Cone referred to outfielder Ichiro Suzuki’s bat as a “chopstick” on the telecast during the Yankees-Red Sox game on Tuesday night.

“Probably a ball, but Suzuki with the chopstick,” Cone said while watching a replay of Ichiro’s at-bat.

Suzuki reached for an outside pitch and grounded a ball to the shortstop in the 11th inning. The Yankees won 4-3 in the 12th, but Cone’s remark stood out.

    calling this a racist remark is silly…and I’m a liberal dem…he was probably just trying to be funny and it fell flat

    I’ll bet Cone was trying to be cute by mixing ethnicity with the fact that Ichiro gets so many hits on infield chop grounders.
