Vikings sign Linval Joseph to 4-year extension:
The Vikings have focused on resigning their defensive stars this offseason. Linval Joseph is the 3rd (Rhodes and Griffen) but may not be the last. He signed a 4-year extension worth $50 Million today, $31 Million of which is guaranteed. It looks like the Vikings are trying to make it a priority to get Hunter, Barr, and Kendricks signed to long-term deals.
Twins LOSE vs the Rangers:
The Twins’ hitters couldn’t figure out Cole Hamels tonight. Gibson gave up a 2-run HR in the first and then buckled down. He was able to make it through 5.1 innings, giving up 3 runs. When Gibson is on the mound you need to be happy with 5.1 and just 3 runs. But the Twins couldn’t get any offense rolling. They would lose 4-1. Here is the recap from Twins Daily.
Offensively, it wasn’t pretty. But this was:

Twins FIRE 4 scouts:
Interesting little tidbit by Levelle Neal III tonight. The twins have fired 4 scouts that were a part of the old regime as they continue to mold the organization to fit their wants and needs.
Last night of Training Camp in Mankato:
The Vikings are wrapping up their last practice in Mankato tonight. There were a lot of memories shared throughout the last couple weeks. The Vikings will move to Eagan next year. We had no ties to Mankato here, and we are based in Eagan, so we are exited about the move.
This happened tonight though. It is pretty cool:
