Pivotal.

The Royals are in contention for the Cactus League title. Can Yost survive?

Just like that, Joe Torre slices the heart out of our lineup. I mean, Willy Taveras is the DH. If we lose today... I can't even.

Boo Torre.

Lineup:
Alex Gordon - LF
Alcides Escobar - SS
Billy Butler - 1B
Mike Moustakas - 3B
Jeff Francoeur - RF
Lorenzo Cain - CF
George Kottaras - C
Chris Getz - 2B
Willy Taveras - DH

James Shields - SP

Also scheduled to appear:
Will Smith
Dan Wheeler
JC Gutierrez
Brian Sanches
Nate Adcock
Michael Mariot
Blaine Boyer

Huge game. HUGE GAME. Cactus League supremacy. The Mariners are 10-1. This is exactly why we got Shields.

Not so huge. I thought it was the Mariners. It's the Gritbacks. My mistake. Still... This is exactly why we got Shields.

The game will stream on MLB Audio with Steve Stewart again extolling the "Sounds of spring." Judging from the PA system in Surprise., this is bad pop music from the 1980's.

So nervous...
