Twins Blog: ASG Futures Game

It was a sunny, summer Sunday as some of the brightest prospects in baseball took to Target Field for the 2014 All-Star Futures Game. It was especially fun for Twins fans as they got their first look at prospects Jose Berrios, Kennys Vargas and Alex Meyer playing in their future home ballpark. Berrios was recently promoted from High-A Fort Meyers to AA-New Britain. So far, advancing a level hasn’t phased him.

Wild Blog: Wild Select Right Wing On Quiet First Night Of The Draft

The best way to describe the 2014 NHL Draft is forward heavy. If you need a center or a wing there is a good chance you can get one in this draft. That’s exactly what the Minnesota Wild did Friday night as they selected Alex Tuch with the 18th pick overall in the 2014 NHL Draft. Otherwise it was a pretty quiet night for Minnesota.

Twins Blog: Waiting Game

Ten years. Two hundred ninety-two games. One thousand ninety-three and two-thirds innings. That’s how long Yohan Pino had to slog his way through the minor leagues before finally getting his shot at the big leagues. And, in an ironic twist few sports other than baseball could provide, he had to wait an extra two hours on Thursday night thanks to a steady rain that delayed the start of the Twins vs. White Sox until 9:16 p.m.

Twins Blog: The Twins/Brewers Bowling Ball Bet

A case of beer, dinner, $10 or perhaps a car wash. When it comes to sports, no bet is too large or too small. Especially when it involves a friendly rivalry. An unusual one is “brewing” in the border battle between Minnesota and Wisconsin, and it involves bowling balls.
