Pitchers and catchers report to spring training at Fort Myers on Feb. 13, the Twins announced Monday. That's only 104 days from now, and it's more than a week earlier than last year.


It has felt all along like this World Series was destined to go seven games. It will take one more Cubs victory over Cleveland to make it so, but Chicago has the right pitcher (Jake Arrieta) on the mound as it attempts to extend the series again. Game 6: 7 p.m., Ch. 9.


"Can't believe how many of you are writing the Wolves off already. It's been two games. Do you even call yourselves fans or are you just here to say negative things about the Wolves so you can feel better about your mediocre existence?"

"There's no need for threats, Mike, we're all just having a good time here."
