La Velle E. Neal III has covered baseball for the Star Tribune since 1998 (the post-Knoblauch era). Born and raised in Chicago, he grew up following the White Sox and hating the Cubs. He attended both the University of Illinois and Illinois-Chicago and began his baseball writing career at the Kansas City Star. He can be heard occasionally on KFAN radio, lending his great baseball mind to Paul Allen and other hosts. Mark Rosen borrows him occasionally for WCCO-TV.

Phil Miller covered three seasons of Twins baseball, but that was at a different ballpark for a different newspaper. Now Miller returns to the baseball beat after joining the Star Tribune as the Gopher football writer in 2010, and he won't miss the dingy dome for a minute. In addition to the Twins and Gophers, Miller covered the Utah Jazz and the NBA for six years at The Salt Lake Tribune.

Twins-White Sox game postponed

Chicago, like the Twin Cities, has had a rough weather week. Heavy rains have led to flooding and highways being closed.

Now it's cold. I was pulling up at the hotel when tonight's Twins-White Sox game was postponed because of cold weather. It's 39 degrees now and expected to be around freezing by game time. A makeup date has not been announced yet.

Vance Worley will start on Saturday and Scott Diamond will start on Sunday. Kevin Correia and Mike Pelfrey are tentatively scheduled to start the two games against Miami.

Since the Twins have decided to have a top farm system, the weekly minor league report will return to the sports section starting tomorrow. What I would like to do is keep some sort of "Minor Details" on the website, but there will be weekly notes every Saturday. The Twins have several exciting prospects, and we are going to do all we can to keep you informed about them.
