Default Wimpy and Stoney

Paciorek and Stone were fun last night. Even Kitty chimed in, as well at the Twins announcers. A breath of fresh air

I didn't watch, but at this point anyone but Hawk and Stone would be entertaining. Those two are dreadful together. Some will say it's Hawk. Others will say it's Stone. Regardless, they're both OK, but put them together and it's a train wreck.

I know some people commented in the past that Stone isn't good at play-by-play. Seriously, he is just fine at it. I don't know what some of you expect.

Him and Wimpy tonight have an fun, engaged, relaxed broadcast. Good stuff.

I agree, these are some of the best broadcasts I've heard in awhile. I missed the one yesterday though, I would love to hear it.

Stone has become much better at pbp. He did a solo game a couple of years ago and did a couple of games with Mike Huff last year where it was awkward. He has come a long way.

I love Stone and Wimpy together. It just sounds so natural. Win or lose It's just so much less depressing to listen to minus Harrelson. I just wish the Sox would make the change and make this happen.

I've always been a fan of Wimpy. He has fun, gives pretty good insight, and doesn't take himself too seriously. I've also enjoyed listening to him and Stone Pony.

Wimpy and Stoney were fine last nite.
Wimpy is good in small doses,but he is not a full time guy anymore,period.

I think Stoney and Hawk have been better of late....now that the Sox fate is inevitable, I think it has taken some of the frustration out of the booth(mainly from Hawk),and they are more relaxed, just shooting the breeze on baseball....fine with me.

I for one would rather listen to Stone and Wimpy any day over Harrelson. To me it is a HUGE difference in the booth. I'm just so tired of hearing the same old lines can of corn, he gone, come on boys don't stop now. Hawk has had his run and it is time to move on to a more professional broadcast team. Keep Stone for the pbp and add a color man.

Yes, that read more harsh than it was intended. I like Wimperoo,but do not think he is up for a fulltime gig.
No doubt Hawk has his rough moments.

This is the kind of season that truly tests players,media and fans. Hawk has to find a way to make it entertaining the rest of the way....we will see if he can do it. If not, then hang'em up.

Wimpy is great wish and not too bad with Stone. Neither cuts each other off like Hawk constantly does to Stone.
