MSF Daily – 8/4/17
Twins lose 4-1 against the Rangers back at Target Field:
Mejia wasn’t able to battle out of trouble all night long. He did many times… but not enough. He was pulled after 4 innings. He gave up 4 runs on 7 hits. The worst was a 3 run HR by Joey Gallo in that fateful 4th inning.
The Twins continue to struggle at the plate. They were 3 hit tonight by a Rangers team that isn’t known for their shutdown pitching, especially something called A.J. Griffin as the starting pitcher.
Now trailing Kansas City by 4.5 games, Dozier better grab his teammates by the jockstraps and turn this ship in the right direction or his crying about selling players is going to look worse than his hair.
Kyrie Irving NOT willing to commit to extension when/if traded:
Today reports came out that Kyrie Irving won’t commit to an extension with any team that he is traded to. That would be a good reason as to why Wiggins is reportedly NOT on the table in discussions. We have all the latest news on that front in our always-updating Kyrie Irving Wants to be in Minnesota article.
New Wolves’ Jerseys will be released August 10th:
Randball is reporting that we will FINALLY get to see the new Timberwolves’ Uniforms in one week: Thursday, August 10th. We will be waiting ever-so-patiently… until there is a leak.
Looks from Mankato:
It was pretty quiet in the MN Sports World Thursday, including Vikings’ Camp. Nonetheless, we can always rely on some highlights from guys who can’t hit each other:
