The grass and dirt will be ready for business as Opening Day for the MLB season is just days away. Eric is gearing up for it here in Downtown Minneapolis, while Larry is seeing the last swings of the Cactus League season in Phoenix. We get an in-depth look at the Twins from former player Al Newman, broadcaster Dick Bremer, and manager Paul Molitor. Larry is also in the Desert Southwest to cover the NFL Owners’ Meetings and the NCAA Men’s Final Four. Our hosts dive into the relocation of the Oakland Raiders and a college basketball anniversary that “didn’t really happen.” Also, the Wild change the calendar and the Wolves will change their logo.

Change is in the Air
Segment 6: The Wild have will turn the page on a fairly miserable March. Can a flip of the calendar flip their fortunes heading into the postseason? The Wolves are all but eliminated from playoff contention. However, could a new outlook be on the horizon thanks to a new…logo?
