Tuesday Twins: No one believes in us anymore

Tuesday Twins: No one believes in us anymore

Kent Wegmann, a 45-year-old IT consultant from Farmington, knows this all too well. As soon as the calendar hit February, he started calling in to both KFAN and 1500ESPN. The topic: Twins first baseman Joe Mauer. “The trick with calling into the stations is to not call him a murderer or a sexual deviant,” confided Wegmann. “Even with Trump in charge, the Obammunists at those stations will tell the producers to hang up on you if you go there. Instead, just say you...

All the news that’s sort of news, sort of, on a Thursday. ‘CCO: “JoJo MoJo No-Go?” WCCO gives four reasons why they think the Twins will be better this year.
