It's real! Andy McCullough tweeted about it!

Questions about Zobrist's best use rightfully remain, but for now it means a pretty exciting outfield of Zobrist/Cain/Dyson. No Orlando, no Rios, no problem.

The Royals will be sending Danny Duffy to the mound against the Blue Jays, owners of the current longest playoff-less streak in baseball. Toronto is thusly not playing around. They have acquired David Price and Troy Tulowitzke this deadline, rivaling the Royals' recent splurge for postseason action.

This be the Blue Jays lineup. It be scary.

Happy Zobrist Day, and enjoy the game.
