ESPN projects Twins second baseman Brian Dozier could command a five-year, $77 million contract as a free agent next offseason. That would be quite a different market than the one we saw this past offseason and would force a pretty tough (or maybe pretty easy?) decision for the Twins.
The bad news for the Wild is it still trails 2-1 in its NHL first-round series with Winnipeg. The good news is Game 4 is at Xcel Energy Center, where the Wild could do no wrong in Game 3. (7 p.m., FSN).
