The trade of Denard Span for a top Class A prospect could be -- repeat, could be -- the first sign that the Twins are looking beyond 2013 when it comes to contending. And that might not be a bad idea.
It's the Pac-12 title game everyone expected! Check that, it's the game nobody expected at the start of the year, but watch UCLA vs. Stanford anyway (7 p.m., Ch. 9).
"Sorry to see Span go, but the writing was on the wall with Revere on the horizon. Hopefully this is the first of many pitching-related moves." Commenter universal on startribune.com.
