In case you missed it ...

... Rashard Lewis officially opted out of the final two years of his contract with the Sonics, a move expected by everyone. He becomes a free agent, and the Sonics say they want to re-sign him despite the fact that he and Durant essentially play the same position. (I agree; I'll talk a little more in the coming days about how these two might fit together.)

... the Mariners whupped on the Royals tonight, 10-2 -- including 7 satisfying runs against Gil Meche. The city has now exhaled, knowing that King Felix left the game with just a stiff back. No reason to believe he'll miss any time.

... Ken Griffey Jr. hit homer No. 574, as he continues to march toward his return to Safeco Field on June 22. I'll be there, by the way.
