Tuesday Open Thread: April 4, 2017

Well, baseball season has begun, thankfully. I think I can survive until fall now.

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

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.

Twins/Wild update:

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.
