Alex Wimmers has already distinguished himself on the playing field as an Ohio State Buckeye by becoming the first-ever back-to-back Big Ten Pitcher of the Year. Wimmers, a draft-eligible junior from Cincinnati and Archbishop Moeller High School, became only the sixth first-round draft pick in Ohio State history when the Minnesota Twins chose him with the 21st pick of … [Read more...] about Minnesota Twins draft Ohio State’s Alex Wimmers in 1st round

by Peter Christian The Vikings have a love/hate relationship with the NFL draft. Well, I guess I should say I have a love/hate relationship with the Vikings NFL Draft decisions.
