Acquired from the Mets on Aug. 27 for a package that included rookie infielder Jeff Kent, Cone wasn't sharp in his first two Blue Jays starts, but in his next five he allowed just four runs in 38 1/3 innings (0.94 ERA, 7 2/3 IP per start). He then added two innings of scoreless relief on three days' rest on the final day of the season. Twenty days later, he threw six strong innings in the clinching game of the Jays' first world championship.
