MINNESOTA SPORTS FAN DAILY – Saturday, July 22, 2017
Kyrie Irving Wants to Be in MN (among other teams) and MN Social Media Lost It:
- A report surfaced on Friday afternoon that Kyrie Irving requested a trade recently away from LeBron James and the Cavaliers. Not only does he want to leave LeBron but he listed Minnesota as a preferred landing spot… Slap yourself and blink as many times as you want. You aren’t dreaming. Is this what we are in for now that we have a legitimate young talented roster? Only time will tell. Here is OUR reaction to the news.
Twins (48-47) Lose vs. Detroit 6-3:
- It was a rough start for Santana as he threw 97 pitches in just 3.1 innings before being replaced. He was going to 3-ball counts way too often. He wasn’t himself. The offense tried to make a comeback. They had a big 4th inning. Sano had 1 RBI and Adrianza had 2 RBI. However, the bats would go silent after that. The Tigers would score one more in the top of the 9th and the Twins go down 6-3. Cleveland handled the Blue Jays handily so the Twins drop to 1.5 back heading into the game tomorrow vs Detroit at 6:10 PM.
- WE WILL BE AT TARGET FIELD TOMORROW! SEE YOU THERE!
Tom Kelly Gets His Statue at Target Field:
- We mentioned this a couple days ago but it happened on Thursday. T.K. was honored with his own statue. It is well deserved:
We’re proud to honor Tom Kelly with his own statue on Target Plaza!
