Alcides Escobar is playing center field, somehow. If it gets Adalberto Mondesi playing time at shortstop, then whatever. Still feels weird, though, you know? Of course it still feels weird anyways, because Escobar is bad and probably has no business being on an MLB roster, let alone making 400+ consecutive starts. But whatever.

Today’s game is on Facebook dot com, unfortunately. Just a heads up as you try to pull up MLB.TV or Fox Sports Go at work. I know you’re doing that. It’s ok to admit it.

Here are you lineups.

Kansas City Royals lineup:

Milwaukee Brewers lineup:

No Lorenzo Cain, because he’s on the DL. Sad. At least he won’t be leaning back on any homers against his former team, I guess.
