He comes off to me as if he's a no it all and he's too good to talk to you. I think he ought to count his blessings that he's had alot of success as an announcer. I would make a pretty good guess that he has made more money as an announcer than what he did as a player. That being the case he should be a little bit more fan friendly than what he has been.
I think deep down Stone feels working for the SOX organization is a step backwards because his greatest career gig was with Harry Caray and the Cubs during their trendy "media darlings" days in the 80s. I know he left the Cubs organization on bad terms, however I think he's pissed the Cubs never offered him the executive management position he hinted to. (GM?)
