I wasn't prepared to like Stone, but found that I do like his insight, especially about pitching.

Homerism doesn't matter either way to me. Intelligent commentary does.
I like Domeshot's take on it being like a soundboard majority of the game. Heck, you could probably replace Hawk with a soundboard (that has plenty of old, exaggerated - or made up - Red Sox stories) for a game and no one would know the difference.
