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-Orioles game cancelled

Good thing the Twins sent Kevin Correia down the street to the minor league fields to get his work in.

As a precaution, the Twins had Correia pitch in a minor league spring training game this afternoon because of a threat of rain tonight in Sarasota when the Twins were to face the Orioles,

Correia got his work in -  and the Twins-O's game, indeed, has been canceled. The game will not be made up.

Next up for the Twins is a night game on Tuesday at Hammond against the Rays.
