Royals vs. Astros Game 9 Open Thread

Insert Doug Fister joke.

Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

The Royals look to take a road series against what should be one of the better teams in the American League this year. Ian Kennedy takes to the hill for the Royals, having yet to allow a run in Royal blue. The Astros go with ground ball pitcher Doug Fister, signed last winter as a free agent. They could be starting young Vincent Velasquez, who threw a complete game three-hit shutout with 16 strikeouts today for Philadelphia, but they traded him away for their setup man. Smooth move.
