Seattle Times Baseball Writer Stone Promoted.

If you were looking for the MLB power rankings in the sports section of today's Seattle Times, they were no where to be found.  The reason was that Larry Stone has been taken off the baseball beat.  Seattle Times Sports editor Don Shelton announced  in today's paper that Larry Stone will fill the position left vacant when Steve Kelley left the paper as  Sports opinion columnist.  In addition to covering Mariner games, Stone's inside pitch page gave Times readers incite into what was happening around the baseball world.
Shelton said that Stone had covered baseball for the Times for 16 years.  He said that the combination of Stone and columnist Jerry Brewer would give the sports page a "great 1-2 sports opinion punch."
