Steve mentions all-around ability of Joe Mauer not only as hitter but as catcher working with the Twins' pitchers. Adds that Mauer was actually a 'controversial' draft
pick--seems the Twins got it right. Steve is the best guy I've ever heard on radio in
knowledge of players & the game in general. He seems less inclined to bias & negativity which others resort to. In reading about him, I learned he was the
Cubs broadcaster removed for being too forthright, but fans still love him. We need many more Steve Stones.Tweet
