M&J Pecking Order: Top 10 positive things in Minnesota sports right now

By Phil Mackey

Every Tuesday at 10 a.m. on 1500 ESPN Twin Cities, Mackey & Judd unveil a new “Pecking Order,” ranking various things in and around the sports world from 1-10.

This week’s Pecking Order: The top 10 positive things in Minnesota sports right now

Feel free to debate in the comments below.

Mackey’s List:

1. Minnesota Lynx (Maya Moore in her prime)
2. Mike Zimmer’s defense
3. Karl-Anthony Towns
4. The Target Field bar scene
5. The backcourt trio of Ricky Rubio, Zach LaVine, Andrew Wiggins
6. Combo of Miguel Sano, Byron Buxton, Max Kepler, Jose Berrios
7. The new Vikings stadium (I know we paid like a half billion for it, but still)
8. Teddy Bridgewater (I don’t think he’s Tom Brady, but it feels like he’ll be OK)
9. The Timberwolves’ “Slam Squad” (Doing some really innovative things off the trampolines)
10. CHS Field

Judd’s List:

1. Nobody does stadiums like us! We have Target Field, US Bank Stadium, TCF Bank Stadium, CHS Field and the X and Target Center is going to be redone.
2. Karl-Anthony Towns/Andrew Wiggins = Wolves future
3. Mike Zimmer has taken the Vikings from 7-9 to 11-5 and a playoff berth with a very good defense
4. Lynx have three championships in five years, including one last season
5. The Twins still have Miguel Sano and Byron Buxton
6. We now know why Zach Parise’s play fell off so badly (herniated disk)
7. Twins fans are more protected than ever by the new netting behind the dugouts
8. Pat Shurmur and Tony Sparano should bring new ideas to the Vikings offense
9. After seeing Demry Croft and Seth Green in the spring game, Mitch Leidner now looks like a good Big Ten quarterback to me
10. Gophers baseball team is a half-game out of first place behind Michigan State in the Big Ten heading into this weekend’s series against Maryland.
