Radio Free Stoney

Steve Stone has agreed to join Ed Farmer and Chris Singleton in the radio booth for Friday White Sox home games in 2008. This should inject a little life into the broadcast. No one has yet to fill the large voice of John Rooney after his departure for St. Louis following the 2005 season.

Steve continues his baseball analysis for 670 AM The Score, in addition to these new Friday home game duties. I, for one, welcome Steve Stone as a new addition to these radio broadcasts. Maybe this will be a primer for his eventual takeover in one of the full time broadcasting roles for the Sox.

Steve filled in on the television side in 2007, when Darrin Jackson took some time off to spend with his family after welcoming a new child to the Jackson clan. Steve's insights and commentary were a welcome change to DJ's "reading from a script" style of broadcasting. Hopefully, this is a sign of better changes for the Sox. An eventual team of Hawk Harrelson and Steve Stone on television broadcasts would be a wonderful thing. Let's hope that's where this will be heading.
