The Minnesota Timberwolves - Another Fine Mess

Minnesota Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor and Flip Saunders, President of Basketball Operations, are definitely sitting on a powder keg. One that was left as a farewell gift from outgoing President of Ops, David Khan. KHAAAAAN!! (Sorry, my fanboy Star Trek self cannot leave that one alone.) With this off-season about to be the most crucial one in over a decade, we are all watching, wondering and trying to figure out how the Timberwolves will get out of this mess. Let's take a brief look at how we got here.

S.O.S - Twins Fans Are Lost And Clueless

**First off, if you came to this website for professional journalism, proper grammar and information that flows well...you came to the wrong site. It's for the fans, BY the fans**

We're only a week in to the 2014 Major League Baseball season, and many fans are already disappointed in their teams. At the top of the list: Minnesota Twins fans. After another loss, on a perfect Spring afternoon at Target Field, Twins fans are left wondering what, or when, the team will turn it around.

It's no secret the Twins' franchise has had a roller-coaster of success. Two World Series championships is nothing to scoff at, lots of fans bases would take those. The Twins's problem is today's baseball is different than it was in 1987 and 1991. Going from worst to first, as the Twins did in 1991, takes more than just "coming together". It takes money and it takes risk.

Welcome to the No Fun League

Welcome to the No Fun League.

 

Since I have placed myself in a self imposed exile, deep inside of Asgard these last several weeks, I have noticed some strange events and rumors propagated by Roger Goodell and the National Football League. There have been several announcements the league has issued that have caused me to re-evaluate my relationship with said NFL, or as it's now being referred to as: The No Fun League.

 

Let me explain.

MLB Standings Projections 2014. Are Teams Getting Worse?

nerdsTime to talk a little baseball. It's been a while since we've discussed th game of baseball on WWBD. Then again, we haven't had much to talk about. The Twins are coming of another poor season, lost one of their top prospects for the 2014 season, and attmpted to make some changes to the team, in hopes of improving in 2014.

The folks over at FanGraphs.com have resleased their annual standings predictions for the upcoming major league baseball season. If you compare their projections to last season's final standings, there are far fewer teams winning 90+ games. On the opposite end, they have the bottom teams having more wins than last season (Houston is predited to win 16 more games?!).

This begs the question: Is FanGraphs saying the best of the best are taking a step back, while the bottom feeders are getting better? The answer, to me, is no. To me, it seems this is the safe way to make predictions, knowing you'll be held accountable (hopefully).
