Chicago White Sox broadcast analyst didn't exactly commit himself to a return for the 2013 season during a Friday radio interview.

Chicago White Sox broadcast analyst Steve Stone was decidedly noncommittal when asked during a Friday radio interview whether he intended on returning to the booth next season, which got the attention of Jim Margalus over at South Side Sox.

Towards the end of their interview with Stone on 670 The Score, radio hosts Dan Bernstein and Terry Boers asked the broadcaster, whose contract runs through the 2014 season with a club option for 2015, whether he planned to be back in 2013. Stone didn't exactly answer the question one way or the other.

"Well, you know, it's very strange," he began. "At this point, certainly. I have some time left on my contract. You know, I don't know, you sit back, it is a very long year and the traveling doesn't get any easier and then you sit back, you evaluate everything."

He then referred to baseball as "an addiction" and threw in some reference to "green bananas."

You can listen to the whole interview below, with the question of Stone's future coming up just after the 16-minute mark.

Stone, whose 10-year big league career included two stints with the White Sox, has sat in the booth beside longtime play-by-play man Ken "Hawk" Harrelson since the 2009 season.
