Mike Hughes does the right thing after signing rookie contract

He did, indeed, buy his mother a house A week ago, we asked everyone what their first purchase would be if they were the #1 overall pick in the NFL Draft. When we posed this question on social media, the overwhelming answer was some form of “I’D BUY MY MAMA A HOUSE!” (So much so that we had to put a caveat on the question when we posted it here on the main site.) Because, you know, that’s what you should do when you come into that sort of money, right? Well, Minnesota Vikings rookie cornerback Mike Hughes might not have been the #1 overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft. . .and we...

Brewers could be looking to trade for two Twins infielders

Is David Stearns looking to acquire Eduardo Escobar and Brian Dozier? The Milwaukee Brewers have an obvious need in the infield, and they could be looking at their neighbors to the north for help. Ken Rosenthal says that one team has asked the Minnesota Twins about getting both Brian Dozier and Eduardo Escobar and he guesses that it’s our beloved Brewers. Heard two interesting things today that give insight into how creatively teams think at deadline. One club - I’m guessing #Brewers - asked #Twins about getting BOTH Dozier and Escobar.

It’s safe to say the Wild have two goals this summer. Sign Matt Dumba and Jason Zucker. Well, one goal became complete early Saturday morning as the Wild and Dumba agreed to a 5 year, 30 million dollar contract that he deserves.

Zucker’s arbitration hearing is set for July 28th, but you hope they both can come to terms on a dell beforehand. On our walk with us is Imagine Dragons new hit song “Natural”.
