If only they would add him to the broadcast on either Tv or radio.

That's good news. Maybe Stone is being worked into a more permanent situation for the future.

I like DJ and think he is much improved......but..... In my perfect world, Stone would join Hawk in the Booth and DJ slides over to Radio with Farmer and Singleton goes home

That's great news. Hopefully it will lead to a bigger role.

Can he still pitch? Maybe out of the bullpen?

I'm so glad to hear that Stone will be back in the Sox booth hopefully in 09 he can take over full time

Looks like the Sox gave Stoney his own personal Ozzie plan.

I would love to hear Stone and Rooney sometime down the road do a game together that would be some great radio..

Hmm...I wonder if the talked to Farmio about this. Not sure how he's going to handle being in the booth and being upstaged by someone who is light years better than he'll ever be...

In my perfect world, both Farmer and Singleton go home.

13 games only is just a teaser, we could use a lot more of Stone

In a perfect world, Rooney comes back to the radio, but realisitically it is good to have Steve Stone in there.

Actually, I think in a perfect world, Singleton can stay with Stone and Farmer goes home. Singleton's bad, but it's only because he's dragging an anchor.

He did it with Rooney for all those years, why not with Stone?

Actually, when the two appeared on the radio together this past summer they got along great. I think Farmio having someone with Steve's knowledge of the game will be fine; as I think Ed looks at Chris as being just not up on baseball lore like "an old timer."

This sounds like it will be fun radio!

Which plan is this under? Awesome though. Too bad I can't hear the games.

Get an XM radio and take the Sox everwhere! I'm going into season number 4 in 2008!!!!:smile:

I could not agree more. I can't stand Farmer.

Mike North calling a game is almost as bad as Kenny signing Barry Bonds.

Ed Sherman's story on this. Includes quotes by Brooks. Just my impression but if things don't work out for Stone vis a vis the new Cub owners I think he'll wind up in the Sox TV booth.

That is good news even though it's only going to be 13 games. The only glitch to this whole story will be how it affects Steve's agreement to do 13 sox games and wanting some role in ownership with the crosstown flubs.:gulp:

The Tribune article mentions Stone looking for a TV position..... Stone and DJ on TV? That's the ticket!

As for radio, both Farmer and Singleton have to go. Just keep Mike North the hell away from the Sox booth!

Neither Stone nor DJ is a play-by-play guy. You'd need to pair either of them with somebody who can call the game. I wouldn't mind seeing Hawk and Stone paired together if their egos can fit inside the same booth. In the games they worked together last season, Hawk sounded better than he has since his Don Drysdale days.

Hawk isn't a real play-by-play guy either. He just plays one on TV.

Very happy to hear this. He could be our best signing of the year so far. He certainly will be a heck of a lot cheaper than Linebrink. Next step, now that he's done some work in both booths, is to do more next season, maybe even sign on for a full season.

Mike makes more in a year than the 4 announcers combined. There's a sad commentary for you. Maybe he can work at the grilled Polish stand on the concourse behind 3rd base on half-price Monday's. He has the experience. (I've never had a grilled Polish with Marconi Giardiniera, hmmmm.)

Awesome. I'd love to see him teamed up with Hawk in a few years. I loved the way they worked together.

Hawk certainly is a polarizing figure, even between Sox fans, but I love the guy. As for as the addition to the radio broadcasting crew.... YES! STONE PONY!

That was a great home run call by Hawk. The replay of that game was on Sunday afternoon. Stone predicts a Uribe walk-off, and then it happens.

I like Stone and look forward to hearing his insights about the White Sox.

I'd love to see Stone be the color analyst. Just go out and find a great play by play person in which to pair him. Then the TV broadcasts would be wonderful.

Love this idea. Stoney in the TV booth was pure joy.

I'd keep Farmer for color and move DJ to play by play. As much as Farmer does grate on you at times...no Farmer means no WSI "Ask Farmio!"....I can't have that.:smile:
