In today's Top 5: Defending Ponder, beating Orlando, embracing the Steamer, looking for pitching and state volleyball at the X.

1) Sid talks. We listen. Mr. Hartman says don't blame Mr. Ponder. In his opinion, the Vikings have the worst receivers in team history.

2) After beating Orlandolast night, the Timberwolves are 3-1 for the first time since 2001. Who saw that coming?

3) Who is the current Wolves darling? It has to be Greg Stiemsma. Patrick Reusse, Tom Powers and Joan Neisen all wrote columns about the former Badger today.

4) Baseball trade rumors will heat up this weekend when the MLB general managers meet in California. Twins geek John Bonnes has a roundup of the starting pitchers on Minnesota's radar.

5) The girls' state volleyball tournament starts this morning at the X in St. Paul. While Lakeville North is expected to be the class of the big schools, Roseville -- with identical twins Meghan and Melissa Koop -- hope to pull off a Raider upset.
