One thing about Steve Stone: he will never shy away from giving his opinion.
You watched the Cubs vs Sox game yesterday, right?
When it turned out to be a Sox broadcast I'll bet a $million bucks you tuned into the radio broadcast so you could hear the Cubs' broadcasters, too.
For whatever reason, I didn't.
And it was hilarious listening to Steve Stone.
Don't know who the other guy was - Hawk Harrelson was off or something.
But considering the broadcast came from the Sox, the coverage was remarkably even (except for things like the interview with Todd Frazier that went on for 6 hours).
In the first the Cubs jumped all over Sox starter and I believe there were 3 runs before an out was recorded.
And this isn't exact but the dialogue went something like:
OTHER GUY: ... and they're playing a split squad since the Cubs have a night game against the Dodgers.
STONE: WELL THAT'S GOOD. It's already 3 zip... you don't want to see the rest of those guys.
Now, that's just funny.
Imagine if Hawk was in there - I bet a fight would have broken out.
Anyway, the Cubs looked good.
Pitching, fielding, hitting... all good.
Jason Hammel was fantastic, and Fowler, Kawasaki, Heyward, Candelario, Rizzo... everybody was fantastic.
Just a perfect Saturday.
Cubs 9 Sox 2.
I missed the Dodger game but Wilson Contreras went 3 for 3.
Cubs 5 Dodgers 6.
