I was at SoxFest all weekend and I also appreciate Stone's ability to conduct an insightful interview with players and coaches. In comparison, Ed Farmer hosted a session with Thornton, Jones, Linsdstrom and Thigpen and it was horribly awkward. No one knew if he was making a comment or asking a question...so many awkward pauses.
Similar to his play-by-play.
"I have the ultimate respect for White Sox fans. They were as miserable as the Cubs and Red Sox fans ever were but always had the good decency to keep it to themselves. And when they finally won the World Series, they celebrated without annoying every other fan in the country." Jim Caple, ESPN (January 12, 2011)
