Wimpy Lineup for Wimpy's Return

The Sox are going into battle with Royals tonight with what looks like a split squad spring training line up- Yes, Omar Vizquel, defensive whiz, is making his debut at DH tonight. That would be his career debut. This is his 22nd year in the big leagues.

The 43-year-old Vizquel is hitting .129 this season and his only extra-base hit was a bloop double. Meanwhile, Jayson Nix gets to chew sunflower seeds.

Speaking of things from the '90s, Tom "Wimpy" Paciorek will make his return to Sox broadcasting tonight. Wimpy, last seen on TV with the Sox in 1999, will be filling in for Darrin Jackson as Ed Farmer's radio partner for the next two series in Kansas City and Detroit.

Growing up listening to Hawk and Wimpy, I am very excited we all get one more chance to hear Paciorek call a Sox game again. Here's hoping we get a "we take tha' one" or "that funky motion" this weekend!

In anticipation of Wimpy's return, Chuck Garfien caught up to him for a nice interview. Read the Sox Drawer interview here.

For those watching on TV, the Big Hurt Frank Thomas will be filling in for Steve Stone. Any way we can get Thomas and Vizquel to swap positions?
