In Minneapolis, Sid Hartman reports there "are strong indications that the state Legislature will not approve the $51 million St. Paul needs to remodel the Civic Center to get an NHL team. If not, look for the Minneapolis City Counsel to come up with a new financial plan for the Target Center," to make room for the T'Wolves and a new NHL team to play there (Minneapolis STAR TRIBUNE, 3/2)....The STAR TRIBUNE's Jay Weiner examines the Twins' ballpark deal with the state owning 49% of the team: "Aside from the philosophical arguments are the complex financial questions about whether such an arrangement is a good investment. The answers have much to do with the future appreciation of baseball teams" (Minneapolis STAR TRIBUNE, 3/1)....The MLB Giants have asked permission to increase prices this season on about 20% on food and drinks at Candlestick Park. S.F.'s Recreation and Park Commission "must consider the request -- made by the Giants on behalf of its concessionaire, Volume Services. Under city policy, the request must be granted as long as it is 'reasonable'" (S.F. EXAMINER, 3/1).
