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.
