The #MNTwins were one of the 17 teams in the Dominican late last week to scout 20-year-old Cuban FA CF Eddy Julio Martinez (and others).

Jerry Zgoda

WIggins was only unanimous choice for All Rookie 1st team, getting chosen for it by all 130 voters. Mirotic got 128, Noel 125, Payton 121

Jerry Zgoda

All-Rookie first team: Wiggins, Mirotic, Noel, Payton, Clarkson. Second team: Smart, LaVine, Bogdanovic, Nurkic, Galloway

Jerry Zgoda

Rookie of the Year Andrew Wiggins makes NBA All-Rookie team of course and Zach LaVine makes All-Rookie second team

Andy Greder

#Twolves rookie Zach LaVine named to the NBA All-Rookie second team. He had 135 points, including 22 first-team votes.

Jerry Zgoda

Flip was in Cleveland early last week, attended Chicago draft combine Wed thru Fri a.m. and returned to Ohio. His father Walter died Tuesday

Andy Greder

#Twolves rookie Andrew Wiggins was the lone unanimous choice for the NBA All-Rookie team. He had all 130 votes.

Darren Wolfson

Glen Taylor now will rep #Twolves on TV tomorrow. Wife Becky not allowed to. Family banned w/ policy change by NBA, as @Minn_Sports 1st had.

Jerry Zgoda

Condolences to @Flip Saunders and his family on the passing of his father, who died in Cleveland last week

#Gophers FB already has 7 commitments from metro area kids. Impressive 9 months from Signing Day. I'll introduce you to each at 10:45 @KSTP.

Andy Greder

Wicked angle on Sydney Leroux's goal. She's like, "Thanks, teammate, I gots this." #USWNT

John Meyer

Wrote tons of words about how little I believe in Porzingis & then accidentally hit back & lost everything. Probably not the worst result.

John Meyer

Dear Clippers, I know you're feeling down, but don't think about it too much. You had plenty of chances. youtu.be/BPwCd9vjO6E

Good for @Corey Brewer and Mac, who leaves the court arms upraised and smiling like I never remember him smiling in Minn

Paul Molitor on Kennys Vargas' mentality before demotion to AAA: "Right now, it’s cluttered." Says its patient one at-bat, aggressive next.

Darren Wolfson

Have said I like seeing LAC do well. But happier for future #NBA head coach J.B. Bickerstaff. Stock will only continue to rise w/ this run.

John Meyer

Game. Set. Match. Rockets advance.

Andy Greder

#MNTwins manager Paul Molitor said Eduardo Nunez is going to be activated for Pittsburgh series and Kennys Vargas is going to Class-AAA.

Andy Greder

Final: Tampa Bay 11, #MNTwins 3. Minnesota fails to get the series sweep. Everyone wins because there was no rain delay.

Andy Greder

That bobble resulted in Danny Santana's 10th error this season. #mntwins

John Meyer

Austin Rivers with 3 fouls in 6 minutes, also known as "Pekovic's rookie year."

Andy Greder

Back in the bigs, Michael Tonkin gives up two-run single to Evan Longoria. Things have gotten ugly. Now 6-1 Rays in the sixth.

Andy Greder

#MNTwins reliever Tim Stauffer (strained right side muscle) was to throw three innings in Class-AAA Rochester today. He went 1.1IP, 4H, 3ER.

Darren Wolfson

#MNTwins still have time to make a decision on Tim. But it remains an easy one, IMO. twitter.com/rocredwings/st…

Andy Greder

Kevin Kiermaier singles past a drawn-in Brian Dozier to score Nick Franklin, and the Rays take a 4-1 lead over #mntwins in sixth inning.

John Meyer

Secret: Big fan of Terrence Jones

Andy Greder

Final line for #MNTwins starter Kyle Gibson: 5IP, 8H, 3ER, 2BB, 2K, 94 pitches, 57 strikes. Left for Brian Dunning and trailing 3-1.

John Meyer

#HoopIdea -- if this game ultimately goes to OT, DeAndre Jordan and Dwight Howard should both shoot 10 free throws. Winner moves on to WCF.

Jerry Zgoda

Were the Clippers really a 2.5 point Vegas favorite in this one?

John Meyer

Cheering for HOU because I like Brewer & Harden. And McHale has become a good coach, which I never thought possible. Also, Clips annoy me.

Andy Greder

Brandon Guyer with an RBI single to make it 3-1 Rays over #mntwins.

Jerry Zgoda

NBA lists Glen Taylor as Wolves' rep for Tuesday lottery, but he and Flip Saunders intend to send Taylor's wife, Becky, on stage

Jerry Zgoda

Tuesday's draft lottery will be before Western finals Game 1, Warriors vs. Rockets/Clippers.

Andy Greder

#MNTwins starter Kyle Gibson rebounds from a rocky third inning to send the Rays down in order in the fourth. Still 2-1 Tampa Bay.

Andy Greder

#MNTwins starter Kyle Gibson labors, and Tampa Bay leads 2-1 in mid-third inning.

Andy Greder

Evan Longoria with RBI single through the left side of the diamond to tie game 1-1. Bases still juiced, no out. Kyle Gibson has 53 pitches.

Chase Budinger

Clippers or rockets? Who's winning

Andy Greder

#MNTwins starters Kyle Gibson has two on and no out to start the third inning. He failed to cover first in time and then gave up a walk.

Andy Greder

Today is the 17th anniversary of David Wells' perfect game against #MNTwins when he had a "a raging, skull-rattling hangover."

Andy Greder

Joe Mauer with an RBI single up the middle, and the #mntwins take a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the first inning.

Jerry Zgoda

Re: @letterman finale: He once interviewed for Ch. 9 weather job, saw I-494 sound barriers, thought them snow fences & deemed Minn too cold

Darren Wolfson

Those #MNTwins draft meetings were actually over a week ago. Was each individual area scout meeting 1-on-1 w/ the bosses. Draft early June.

Darren Wolfson

The #MNTwins just had all their draft scouts in town to make presentations, etc., per Rob Antony. Twins have picks 6 and 73 in the top-75.

Andy Greder

#MNTwins' Eduardo Nunez (strained oblique) said yesterday's running and batting practice went well. Decision on his future to be made today.

Darren Wolfson

Utterly bored w/ this take. Lottery is NOT rigged. Would be incredibly boring to televise. Teams have people watch. twitter.com/daveyj6568/sta…

#MNTwins lineup as they go for the sweep and hope to avoid the rain in the series finale against Rays this afternoon: http://t.co/THfO2CUk50

Possibly. Looney, if he falls. Hear #Twolves have done a lot of background work on him (others too, I'm sure). twitter.com/D__Luxxx/statu…

Despite 16 wins last season, #Twolves has 80 percent renewal rate for full-season ticket equivalents, @Charley_Walters reports.

(3/3) 2009: Royce, Mbakwe, Cobb, Rodney. Let's just say Pitino & company have a solid class. No more extreme statements. #gophers

Darren Wolfson

(2/2) Other examples too. And I'm not talking about how the players turned out. Just how the classes were hyped/ranked. #Gophers

Darren Wolfson

Big fan of this #Gophers recruiting class. But seeing lots of hyperbole about it being by far the best ever. Look back at the Devoe class.

Fien's rehab path back to the #MNTwins is "elaborate" in the words of Mollie. He will need a rehab assignment.

Corey Brewer finished +32 with 19 points and 10 rebounds in 24 minutes off the bench. That was too fun to watch. I'm seriously stunned.

Jon Krawczynski

Doc just pulled a Zach LaVine.

Darren Wolfson

I wonder how much Doc is kicking himself for not ultimately completing a trade for Brewer in December. Came down to them, Cavs, & Rockets.
