Good morning.

With the trade deadline in 13 days, I figured this would be a good time to do another "mail bag," 2017 style.

This Sunday, I'm planning the second Russo's Rants Q and A of the season for my Sunday Insider.

They definitely don't all need to be trade deadline questions, by the way.

As a reminder, the way it works: You ask a question in the comment field of this blog, and I may pick it out and answer in my Sunday Insider.

The rules are simple: My Sunday Insider space each weekend is defined, not unlimited, so in order to answer as many questions as possible, I need short, snappy, easy-to-answer questions. I also reserve the right to edit or trim the questions for space.

Please also make the questions unique. Read what others are asking and come up with something different so we get as many subjects as possible.

Also, please don't use the comment field on this particular blog to comment on the Wild or questions. It'll just make it more difficult for me to go through and pick out questions.

You have until Friday morning.

If you want, you can also ask your questions on the comment section of this blog link at

LIKE that, by the way, because all Star Tribune Wild links end up there.

Ready, set, go!
