  • Steve Stone in the Cubs front office?

    For those hoping to see a Steve Stone return to Wrigley Field perhaps in a front-office capacity, which constitutes a huge percentage of Cubs fans, all-world restaurateur Rich Melman's name has been linked with John Canning for months. Melman and Stone go back to the mid-'70s. "Richard and I have been partners for 33 years. That's true,'' Stone said Thursday. "But who knows how any of this will turn out? There will be crazy twists and turns, and you never know because there's a long way to go in the process. "I do know, having been through the process myself, that baseball likes local ownership and experience in the game, not first-time owners.'' Canning owns 11 percent of the Milwaukee Brewers, and his group is loaded with Chicago power brokers. On paper, it looks like the perfect sell. -- Daily Herald

    I would love to see this. I really miss his commentating. He seems to be a great baseball man.
