• Baseball lost a good man in Royals great Paul Splittorff, who passed away Wednesday from melanoma. He was at the ballpark earlier this month when the Twins were in Kansas City, dressed in a suit, looking classy, determined to watch as many games as possible. He was the definition of a crafty lefty.
• It's the classic second-guess, but Kevin Slowey should have been traded during the offseason and his $2.7 million allocated to relief help. The Twins were having problems dealing with him last season, and things only got worse this year.
• Don't know what's more surprising, Tampa Bay's Matt Joyce leading the league in hitting or Curtis Granderson leading in home runs.... and two predictions
• Tsuyoshi Nishioka will return to the Twins in time for the June 14-16 series against the White Sox.
• The Rockies, with a second-half surge, will overtake the Giants and Diamondbacks to win the NL West.
