Joe Nathan, ergh. Well, at least the Twins have pitching depth. Rauch had 17 saves in 2008. If he can do a passable job, the Twins have enough batting and defense to win the division, especially if Liriano pitches as well as advertised.
Only 21 days until Sean Henderson has to figure out where he is going to spend the next four years with his son.
Isn't it curious that they've gone completely silent for the past 15 days? It's now been almost three weeks since the NCAA hearing with USC. At that point, they had to have been informed that a decision won't be coming down for 6 to 8 weeks, which is outside the April 1 deadline for signing national letters of intent.
It seems there is something causing the young Henderson to not sign a LOI. Academics?
(1) Gopher freshman goalie Noora Raty is one of three finalists for the Patty Kazmaier award, given to the nation's best women's college hockey player. And, she's a freshman.
(2) If you're a Gopher football season ticket holder, you probably got your renewal form this week. Just consider this: USC, Ohio State, Penn State, and Iowa. What an appetizing schedule. And, Minnesota's going to win one of these games. As of now, I'm leaning towards the Penn State game being a surprise victory.
(3) The Spring Football game is April 24th at 1:30pm. If you don't have the aforementioned season tix, this is a great opportunity to get into the stadium and enjoy a "game."
(4) The Gopher baseball team is hosting St. Thomas tonight at Metrodump. 6:30pm start.
