    For people in Minnesota, all the Twins games are blacked out on MLB.tv for the live broadcasts. Could watch them after the fact, but if you're in a team's market area, you cannot watch their games live on MLB.tv

    Deduno looks confident out there.

    His little 89 mph fastball seems to move like Felix's changeup sometimes.

    I have no excuses for many things. However... I'm proud to say that Grand Forks is Twins Territory!!!

    I'm glad you brought that up. I have worked on projects throughout ND, a nicer and more industrious citizenry I have yet to meet.

    I have a question I have always been meaning to ask you: Given your state's new found Oil-based prosperity and the muscle-flexing that comes with that boom wealth, what are the chances that the Twins could partner with the State of ND, Fargo and Grand Forks, purchase a sickly franchise like the Las Vegas 51's and move it to your state? Much closer to the mother-franchise and a natural fan-fit. Put a new stadium on the Interstate between your towns, and you could call them the Fargo-Grand Forks 29's. Or resurrect the Fighting Sioux nickname...

    The demographics for the 2 metro areas combined is close to 275,000, so it seems within the realm of financial possibility.

    I'm interested in hearing your thoughts.

    As an in-market fan, that wouldn't do me much good.

    Don't mean to speak for RB, but I would think the scarcity of air travel options would be one issue.

    But Chief, there's Fargo, Bismarck, and Minot International Airport.

    A quick check of GF Int'l shows 5 departures today, 3 airlines, to 4 destinations.

    There's about 20 departures from Rochester today, 7 airlines, to most major hubs east of the Mississippi.

    Edit: 60 departures, not 20.

    Las Vegas is struggling with over a million in the same geographic range.

    I'd love to see minor league ball up here but it would have to be A ball and Fargo/Moorhead has the better population base.

    AAA markets can draw 10,000 a game. The Redhawks in Fargo draw 3,000... Plus you have to consider corporate sponsorships. Motivated Owners and The building of a stadium that generates income.

    Hillsboro wouldn't be able to support that.
