If anyone still holds a grudge against Tyus Jones for picking Duke instead of signing with the hometown Gophers, they are crazy. He made the best possible decision for himself, and look at how it turned out.
The Twins are hoping they aren't in for a repeat of the past four seasons. Monday's opener didn't help, but Ricky Nolasco would provide a big boost with a strong outing at Detroit. Noon, FSN.
Tyus Jones' performance, and evident class, took some of the sting off of seeing Duke — a team rightfully loathed — win yet another referee-enabled championship. Frankly, this Duke team, outside of the coach, is relatively hard to dislike."
