Cactus League Game 34 Open Thread

James Shields and most of the regulars get ready for Opening Day with a night split-squad contest versus the Cubs on Fox Sports Kansas City.

Fox Sports KC has the game tonight at 8:10 Central Time tonight. MLBN will also offer the game on a delayed broadcast.

The lineup:

Alex Gordon LF

Chris Getz 2B

Billy Butler DH

Mike Moustakas 3B

Salvador Perez C

Eric Hosmer 1B

Lorenzo Cain CF

Jeff Francoeur RF

Elliott Johnson SS

Big Game James Shields toes the rubber for Kansas City tonight. With the Royals' afternoon split-squad game being an absolute demolition at the hands of the Brewers, the Royals need a win tonight to be the unquestioned Spring Champions of both the Cactus and Grapefruit Leagues.

On a serious note, with Fran Bueno (1 IP, 1 H, O R, O K) and Dan Wheeler (1 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 1 K) pitching this afternoon, look for J.C. Gutierrez, Tim Collins and Louis Coleman to get their chance tonight.

We (or I) joked about how many times Miguel Tejada would bat clean-up in the regular season (the over/under was 1), so let's do the same with Chris Getz in the two hole. I am setting the regular season over/under at 21 games.
