Game 40 Open Thread - Arizona Diamondbacks (17-22) vs. Kansas City Royals (15-22): The Battle for League Supremacy

New, comments

Interleague warfare is on. Sides must be taken. American vs. National. Good vs. Evil. Actual professional hitters vs. pitchers trying to bunt like eight-year-old girls.

Brothers will fight on opposing sides. There will be no prisoners. Only one league will emerge victorious.

Alcidies is hitting leadoff with Irving Falu in the #2 hole as he continues his quest to become the first hitter since Ted Williams to hit .400 in a season.

Moose hits seventh, presumably as punishment for releasing a bra-bomb on campus, which really steamed Dean Ned Yost. "MOUSTAKAS! I'LL GET YOU!" he yelled in anger in the trailer for "Boner Academy, Part II", hitting theaters everywhere this July.
