I Hate Steve Stone

Is is just me or is Steve Stone annoying and condescending? Every time he's on 670 (White Sox Central BTW)I want to hang myself. He just can't help ripping into Hendry or the front office. Before they forced him out I loved listining to him on WGN during games but in light of his comments since I really lost all respect for that a**. The guy had a crappy MLB career until his 2nd to last season so what the hell does he know that Peter Gammons doesn't (or any baseball hack for that matter)?

I have always called him Mr. Knowledge. I really never liked him because he thought he knew EVERYTHING about the Cubs (he only pitched 3 years for the Cubs going 23-20) many times Harry would talk just to shut him up. I know what your talking about him on the Score, I just turn it off because you know the Cubs will do nothing right in his eyes.

I liked Stone when he was on TV. A little of a know it all, and is outspoken, but that's what makes him funny. I think he's bitter toward the Cubs for getting fired which I don't blame him. He wasn't too far off base in his comments toward the FO.

Keith Hernandez is like that here in NYC. He says some real stupid stuff sometimes, and it's always funny when he & Tom Seaver will argue, and they start pulling out their baseball resum├ęs. It's ntertaining when I'm forced to watch a Mets game.

Don't get me started on Peter Gammons. If there was ever an overrated "expert" on baseball. He has mastered stating the obvious with authority. He might be remotely okay if he could hide his undying love for the Red Sox while reporting.

Well here is a perfect example of typical posts made on other boards I have been on. The sooner you realize that everyone is entitled to an opinion you will be better off. He was voicing his opinion which it then opens it up for discussion but to downgrade someone because of their opinion is actually the biggest homer move so you may want to look in the mirror and next time you post keep it simple when somebody is voicing and opinion and don't take it to heart and try to make an argument out of it cause that isn't the type of board this has been nor is it the type of board any of us want it to be.

I love listening to Steve Stone.. because he knows so much. If you ever watch him on sunday night baseball or any time he gets to do a game on espn, the dude knows his schtick. It's pretty incredible how he always seems to know the next pitch, the next move, like he's in the managers heads.

Whats a Tribune Homer? Just wanna know, never heard of that. Oh and Hendry just signed Soriano. Oh and Stone is far from right ever.

Stone tries to act like the two tools on 670, Boers and Bernstein. I didn't mind him as much when he was doing the Cub games.

If he wants to trash the Cubs, let him trash the Cubs. It just makes him look like an idiot.

I enjoyed it when he was doing Cubs games but what an idiot he is to stoop to the level that he has, It has really made me despise him.

Could not agree with you more. It was a sad day when I found out he and the cubs were separating.
