Jake Odorizzi believes that he developed bad habits in 2017 with Tampa Bay when he pitched with a sore back.
Welcome to the Wednesday edition of The Cooler, where I know what youre thinking: again Lets get to it:The divide between the current Gophers coaching regime and the previous one has played out at a low simmer for the past two years since P.J. Fleck took over for Tracy Claeys and by extension Jerry Kill.Flecks style and more so his insistence that the culture at Minnesota needed to be immediately and completely changed upon his arrival for Year Zero following a nine-win season under Claeys periodically showed itself as rubbing the old guard the wrong way.The most memorable quote before this week along those lines came from Claeys in a Patrick Reusse column a few months ago.We left a nine-win team. We were going to play Seth Green at quarterback in 2017, and he was going to keep getting better, said Claeys, now the defensive coordinator at Washington State. Wewouldve won eight games last season and been better this year. Much as they want to, dont let em blame too much on me.If that was the overlooked appetizer, the main course arrived Tuesday when Kill went scorched earth on Fleck during a radio interview calling him out for being about himself and changing a lot from the days when Fleck worked under Kill at Northern Illinois.Missing from the opening round of stories about the explosive interview was any kind of reaction from Fleck though attempts had been made to reach him.We still dont have a 100 percent solid reaction from Fleck, but his wife, Heather, tweeted Wednesday morning her first tweet in four days and second tweet this month what sure reads like a subtle rebuttal. And P.J. Fleck retweeted it.Its a long poster-style affirmation of sorts that starts with people are often unreasonable and self-centered and ends with it was never between you and them anyway. In the middle, it preaches succeeding and forgiving in the face of adversity. Just a coincidence, rightIt seems to be a deftly handled attempt to take the high road and defuse the situation one which frankly doesnt make anyone look particularly good Kill for airing old grievances that have made national headlines, Fleck for what he is accused of.In any event, one would imagine the pot would return to a simmer for a while, but who knows Both coaches have egos big enough to fill football stadiums they just display them in different ways.The Wild is STILL in the second wild card spot as of Wednesday morning, with the rest of the Western Conference stubbornly refusing to pass free-falling Minnesota even after a second consecutive 4-0 home loss.But now there are FOUR teams just one point behind Minnesota, and in the Hockey Reference playoff probability report the Wild is all the way down to just 26 percent after being around 70 percent at the all-star break.The cheapest ticket for Duke vs. UNC on Wednesday in mens basketball is more than $2,500. Or you could watch on ESPN at 8 p.m. for no extra cost other than your cable/satellite subscription.
A doctor sewed up the cut with 12 stitches, but because the cut is horizontal, its prone to pull apart as he walks. Thats why the Twins put him in a boot.
Every now and then, you go to a game to watch one thing and get caught up in something unexpected. That happened at Lakeville North on Tuesday for the kids who ended up hanging out with Gophers coach Lindsay Whalen.
Anaheim scored three goals in the final six minutes, including an empty netter, as the Wilds scoreless streak reached 156 minutes and Bruce Boudreau cut short his postgame press conference.
