The Royals will trot out this lineup.
Hand Covers Bruise Lineup: Aoki 9, Hosmer 3, Butler DH, Perez 2, Gordon 7, Valencia 5, Giavotella 4, Cain 8, Escobar 6, Shields 1. #royals— Andy McCullough (@McCulloughStar) May 13, 2014
The Rockies are probably playing some guys, too. Franklin Morales will take the mound for them. I think Vinny Castilla, Dante Bichette, and Big Cat will take the field. I guess Mike Hampton must be coming out of the pen. Watch out for Juan Pierre on the basepaths. He's a burner.
McCullough's got a couple Moore quotes of note in his feed to chew on. I wish Moore would just shut the fuck up. No one wants to hear this drivel, Dayton.
Dayton Moore: "We've got to start winning games 2-1 and 3-1 and 2-0. The defense is going to be a major part of that."— Andy McCullough (@McCulloughStar) May 13, 2014
Moore: "Anyone want to talk about our bullpen? Or talk about our starting pitching? Is there anything good about this team right now?"— Andy McCullough (@McCulloughStar) May 13, 2014
I've said it once, and I'll say it again: #anustart
Who else basically resents having to watch the Royals? I know I sure as hell do. The only thing I enjoy at this point is watching Ventura pitch.
