Merry Tuesday morning everyone, and happy baseball season!
Around the DN since our last open thread:
Ted takes a look at draft priorities.
Vikings news from other sources:
Ben Goessling at ESPN thinks the Vikings may still draft a running back, even though they just signed Murray.
The Vikings signed punter, Ryan Quigley, per Fox Sports. I know, first thing I wondered is if he was related to the Down Under Quigley, too. One can only hope.
Here are 5 things to know about Case Keenum, from Lindsey Young.
Randy Moss played an April Fool’s Joke.
Craig Peters has a prospect profile on Aggies DE Myles Garrett.
Around the rest of the league:
The Packers claimed former Bear, Ego Ferguson on waivers, per NFL.com.
ESPN looks at the Seahawks’ improvements on O line, and whether it’s enough to protect Russell Wilson.
ESPN also has a rundown of the best potential 2018 free agents by position.
The Lions signed linebacker Nick Bellore, per Fox Sports.
The Twins, now on pace to go 162-0 this season, beat the Royals 7-1. Sano, now on pace to belt a whopping 162 home runs this year, went deep in the 4th.
Man, I can’t believe I forgot to put this up yesterday. The mighty Wild slaughtered the lowly Avalanche, 5-2. Scrimmage games/practices like this are good to help a team warm up for the playoffs.
We come to today’s media selection.
I can’t believe I forgot to play this yesterday on opening day, better late than never (but never late is better).
Again, we all know the rules, but in case someone is new:
-No discussion of politics or religion
-No feeding of the trolls
-This isn't a male version of The View, so leave the gender hatred at the door
-Keep the bad language to a minimum (using the spoiler tags, if you must
-Speaking of which, if discussing a newer show or movie, please use spoiler tags
-No pictures that could get someone fired or in serious trouble with their employer
-If you can't disagree in a civil manner, feel free to go away
-While navigating the open thread, just assume it's sarcasm
With that, the beer light is on and the bar is open. Belly up & tie one on. Don't forget to tip your waitress, & try the lengua.
