Only one note before I start this update, and it's primarily for Jason Powell: The only reason the Minnesota Twins are leading the American League Central is because the Cleveland Indians are tired of leading the division. It gets old after a while, so the Tribe's allowing the Twins to hold on to first until we're ready to take it back over.

And of course the usual reminder to keep sending all concise indy notes, news, and feedback to CMMurphyBW@aol.com
