Tampa Bay rookie Wil Myers is one reason the Rays could win the AL East. He was hitting .325 with five homers and 22 RBI through 31 games.

Sunday's three-two pitch

  • July 27, 2013 - 4:12 PM

Three observations …

• One thing overlooked in the Miguel Sano flap: Class AA New Britain was playing Portland the night he admired his home run. Portland is a Red Sox affiliate. The Red Sox are looking for relievers. And GM Terry Ryan JUST happened to be there.

• Congrats to the city of Chicago for approving the $500 million renovation project for Wrigley Field. It will be nice to see how they balance the past and present in the stadium.

• The Yankees appear to be stalling with Alex Rodriguez’s return from injury, and I don’t blame them. If he’s involved in the current PED scandal I would do the same thing.

… and two predictions

• The Twins will trade a reliever before Wednesday’s deadline.

• Not only will the Rays win the AL East, but they will do so comfortably.
