Stone back in Chicago booth

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Top Properties

Steve Stone is going to be back in the booth as a color analyst for Chicago baseball- where he belongs. After a successful pitching career (including a Cy Young) Stone held the television analyst position from 1983-2004 (missing some time for health concerns) where is best known for being the long-time partner of Harry Caray.

This time, however, Stone will be working in radio instead of television.

 

 ...and, oh yeah, he'll be on the right side of town!

That is correct sir! Steve will be doing games for the Chicago White Sox on WSCR 670 AM with 17 year vet Ed Farmer. After the 2005 World Series win, John Rooney left the play by play role that Farmer assumed allowing Chris Singleton to take over analysis duties. Singleton never seemed to get better and is probably much better suited for his new job on ESPN's Baseball Tonight.

As a die-hard White Sox fan- I've pretty much loathed all things Cubs my entire life.Living with a brother and father who are die-hard Cubbies fans, I've had my chance to watch roughly 1,000 Stone-broadcasted games. I app reciate him as the single-best analyst in the sport. Stoney has games planned out several moves ahead like a champion chess player....he'd be well suited as a bench coach, pitching coach or even general manager- but I'll take what we can get!

 

 Stone will make his debut as the official booth partner of Farmer today 3-7-08 when the White Sox battle the Arizona Diamondbacks in Cactus League action.

Anyone who can get this frequency should seriously consider listening for 4 or 5 innings if they can...simply to hear his brilliance.
