If you squint really hard, Luke Hochevar starts to look like Justin Verlander. They're basically the same pitcher, am I right?

The Royals get to attempt to play spoiler to some intradivisional psuedo-rival, a role they've sort of barely relished since the strike 18 years ago. Greatness is sure to come to this franchise some day. Or not. Actually more likely not.
