Three observations …

• Too bad for the Reds. They worked hard to try to land Cuban Rusney Castillo, but the money got too big for them, and he ended up with the Red Sox for $72.5 million.

• Jordan Schafer might be faster than Ben Revere.

• I once thought Gordon Beckham would be a pain in the Twins’ sides for years, but he never matched the hype or built off his promising rookie year in 2009.

... and two predictions

• The Tigers and Athletics will play in the wild-card game.

• The Twins will go 3-4 on their road trip this week to Kansas City and Baltimore.
