Steve Stone to do White Sox radio color

Discussion in 'Sports and News' started by Pulitzer Wannabe, Mar 4, 2008.

  1. Just announced. Great move.

    Is there any Sox fan who won't turn down the TV and listen to the radio instead this year?

    I've posted this before, but of all the baseball color men that have ever lived, there are many that I have enjoyed. But Tony Kubek and Steve Stone are the only ones I've learned something from while watching a game.

    Yeah, but nothing beats Jimmy Piersall's comeback on Harry years ago, when they got into an on-air argument about hit-and-run strategy and Harry said, "Aw, you're crazy, Jimmy."
    To which Piersall replied, "Not any more, Harry ... and I've got the papers to prove it."

    Listening to Cubs Baseball has never been the same since Harry Caray and Steve Stone left.

    RIP to both.

    One went to heaven (Caray)
    One went to hell (Stone going to Comiskey)

    Mike Marshall is out of the lineup today. He's back in LA getting some cocaine for his foot.

    That's novocaine Harry.

    I could really ... REALLY do without baseball color analysts on the radio.

    Just give me Ernie Harwell flying solo and I'll be fine.

    Once Harry moved eight miles north, it was amazing he didn't short the mike at Wrigley by drooling into it. St. Louis and the Sox got the best of Harry . . . he became a caricature of himself at Wrigley.

    True, Ben. But the lesson, as always, is that being a caricature pays. Except if you're Hawk Harrelson. I mean, there are limits.

    Fuck's sake I was going to mention that douchebag but I forgot. Any word on if Stone will add "murdering Harrelson" to his duties as the Sox new radio color guy?
    I can honestly say, that growing up near Detroit with a WGN signal on my TV -- Hawk Harrelson is one of the main reasons why I can't stand the Chicago White Sox. There are others, but he's in the top 3 I'd say.
