Did a meaningful baseball game just take place in the Twin Cities? Did I miss something? Is Kirby Puckett still playing? What year is it, 1991? ... More importantly, why won't ownership spend some money and resurrect this Minnesota Twins franchise???
On a side note: every time I attend a game at Target Field, regardless of who is playing, I am still more excited about the outrageously expensive food available than the actual game being played. Kramarczuk's and AZ Canteen anyone? YUM!
So while most of the sports world and state focuses on the MLB All-Star game (Yawn) taking place in the Twin Cities. We instead should be focused on real sporting news, the new extension of Jason Zucker!
While Zucks probably wishes he was signing a Jonathan Toews sized contract extension, he will gladly take this "prove it" contract from the Wild Brass.
This 2 year contract shows that:
-Chuck/The Church of Yeo still has faith in Zucker as a player
-that they still believe he can carve out a place on a deep Wild team
-that after starting the year out in Iowa, Zucks will make the leap to MN
-or that they just want him around so they can trade him in a year, when his value increases!
Anybody else envisioning a Zucker-Haula-Coyle third line, talk about speed!!!
Heater’s gonna Heat!
