I've been listening/watching/attending to all games since I was 7-8 years old in 1990.Here is my current perspective on Twins programming.
Radio > TV. The Twins Radio team is very good and such a part of spring/summer/autumn around here. Now the winter Hot Stove show keeps fans like myself happy in the sad months, too. You get more information and authenticity via the radio program.Cory Provus is simply incredible.
Provus is a treasure that I think some are finally starting to notice.Gladden can be funny and good as a side man, but is not good at play-by-play and I agree he is unprofessional when/how he says Latin names. He and Cory have a great rapport and genuine fondess for one another.
Atteberry is very talented and terrific at the pre/post-game show and I love when he is with Provus.He gets a little wordy when filling in for Gladden, but you can tell he is enjoying the gig, which is important.He knows a lot and is great and sharing it.
TV: I think Bremer is actually quite good.He is very informed and has the voice.He loves the Twins, which is good.Sometimes, yes, a little homer-ish, but he is a MN native and fan.He is very professional and easy to listen to.Bert is just a name some odler fans latch onto.He is not good at this gig. His act is beyond tired.Morneau is terrific and getting better.I think Hawkins is very good, but like that he only does a few games.Kaat is amazing, but can't be expected to do many games.I am thrilled he will be on Twins radio this season at times!I find Hunter overrated.He was a tremendius player to watch, but he isn't useful on TV.He is too goofy and closer to Bert in terms of "when I played" vs. how the actual game in front of him is being played and who is playing it.Smalley is great and really grown on me.I love when Smalley and Morneau are together. I also think the FSN set duo of Dave Benz and Glen Perkins is refreshing and entertaining.Marney is fun and has good presence.Her filling in on TV and radio once in a while would be a big plus, I think.I think Audra is terrific at all of her roles.I'm not a Gorg guy...or Laudner.
I think Trevor Plouffe would be such a great addition in a variety of roles.Now, he won't be leaving his SoCal home for the whole season, but if you could get him for 40-60 games of some analyst work with Dick and Cory, as well as FSN set time, and where I think he'd really shine, roaming the concourses and sections and talking baseball and beer with fans.He's a cool man with lots of commonalities with we fans, other than his hair.
I listen to a lot of out of market radio and TV and honestly the Twins have some of the better programming, especially radio.
