Picking against the Heat might be crazy because Le-Bron James is still the best player on the planet, but I have a strong suspicion the Spurs are going to win the NBA title. I wouldn’t be surprised if they did it in five games.



It still seems weird to have the Twins and Brewers playing in the middle of the week instead of a weekend. This is the second of two games in Milwaukee before the series shifts to Target Field for a pair. 7 p.m., FSN.



“The command, dominance, changing speeds and location of either side of the plate that Phil Hughes throws could easily land him as our starting pitcher in the local All Star game.”
