KICK IT UP A NOTCH: NBCSPORTS.com's Richard Farley reported the NASL Atlanta Silverbacks are expanding the role of Technical Dir Eric Wynalda, giving him "control of everything from the technical director's office to the training ground and sidelines." Wynalda also is an analyst with FS1, and "whenever he's not fulfilling that deal in California, he'll be with Atlanta." Wynalda, who has "long coveted a job in MLS, gets to flash his coaching potential to whatever extent his Fox contract allows" (NBCSPORTS.com, 1/7).
RIGHT ON TARGET: In Minneapolis, Sid Hartman reported the Twins "have renewed" more than 85% of their '13 season tickets and "expect to surpass 17,000 season ticket equivalents" in '14. The team's season-ticket sales in '13 were 19,000 (Minneapolis STAR TRIBUNE, 1/5).
