Royals vs. Mariners Sunday open thread

A poor June means a good July, right?

MLB: Kansas City Royals at Seattle Mariners Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports

The Royals are coming off the second-worst month in franchise history at 5-21 in June, but today marks a new month, a clean slate.

Brad Keller, a Rule 5 pick who the Diamondbacks saw fit not to protect, is pretty much our #2 pitcher right now, behind Danny Duffy. Alcides Escobar plays again, despite hitting .115/.163/.184 last month. Ned Yost is either trolling us or is splitting the bonus money with Esky.
