Rookie Jesse Crain was in the Twins' plans as a top candidate to replace Eddie Guardado as closer even before he began to impress during spring training. Crain has the same easygoing temperament as Twins rookie catcher Joe Mauer, No. 1 on Baseball America's new "Top 100 Prospects" list.
This guy could be really good.
Oops, wrong sport...
New Vikings left cornerback Antoine Winfield: "I'm the best tackler in the NFL. I just don't get credit for it. I'm always around the ball."

Tice has already said that he sin't going to trade Bennett the only thing that the Vikes are interested in from the Raiders is their top pick and they aren't going to give us that for Bennett. I don't see that happening. It would be nice if we could get the LB to sign. I'm not a big Marcus Robinson fan though, I would rather develop Burleson to play opposite Moss. Movin Nick Rogers to DE is also an intriguing idea.
And I would have to agree with this:
Contrary to reports elsewhere, Gophers freshman Kris Humphries, who is a cinch to opt for June's NBA draft, would have loved it if Rick Rickert had remained at Minnesota as a teammate.
