Three observations …
• The White Sox are proof that winning the offseason with splashy moves doesn’t translate to success during the regular season. They are a flawed team.
• In a 100-yard dash between the Reds’ Billy Hamilton and the Twins’ Byron Buxton, Hamilton gets off to a fast start but Buxton passes him after 30 yards.
• Houston’s Collin McHugh makes throwing a curveball look like fun.
.… and two predictions
• The Twins will go 4-5 on their current nine-game road trip.
• Despite a late charge by Jake Arrieta, Zack Greinke will win the NL Cy Young award.
