Game LXIV Open Thread - The Racists of Cleveland versus the Royals of Kansas City

The Racists send the surprise ace Corey Kluber to the mound to dispatch of the hometown Royals. Jason Vargas will throw baseballs for the Royals.

If you look at the fWAR pitching leader boards, you will probably be surprised to find Corey Kluber as the second name on there, nestled between Felix Hernandez and the 2.6-fWAR-duo of Stephen Strasburg and Yu Darvish. The 28-year-old righty currently sports a 10.38 K/9, 2.08 BB/9, 4.95 K/BB and owns the 7th-highest K% in the Majors and a top-30 BB%.

This may not go so well for the Royals.

The Royals' lineup courtesy of Andy McCullough:

The Racists will trot out: Michael Bourn 8, Asdrubal Cabrera 6, Michael Brantley 7, Jason Kipnis 4, Carlos Santana 3, Yan Gomes 2, Lonnie Chisenhall 5, Ryan Raburn DH, David Murphy 9
