Wednesday's Dump & Chase: The board is nearly set

New, comments

It's just about all settled. Minnesota? They're in, thanks to the guys in gold. Colorado? They are left to their own devices in the mountains, where they will ponder some dumb trades and worse contracts. It's a matter of where, or more specifically... what area of the Greater Los Angeles Metro Area will Nashville start their postseason. And that is fine by me.
