Brandon Warne (@Brandon_Warne) of 105 The Ticket, Fangraphs, and Sports Data LLC stops by to talk Twins baseball as well as our Minnesota Fightin' Vikings.
Went baseball today because spring is around the corner, pitchers and catchers are already at spring training, and there's only so much Adrian Peterson f***** speculation that the human mind can take. Plus what better way to wait for training camp in Mankato than grabbing a beer and watching the Twins give it their best at Target Field?
Vikings wise, the Adrian drama continues to unfold as he won his appeal in Federal Court. Even though the NFL is appealing, this will give the Vikings flexibility with what it wants to do with the 30-year old running back once the new league opens on March 10th.
