I cannot freaking believe Alcides Escobar is still playing every day.

MLB: Cleveland Indians at Kansas City Royals Amy Kontras-USA TODAY Sports

The Royals play the Red Sox tonight. 50% of the crowd will be in Boston clothes.

Chris Sale, who is great, v. Jason Hammel, who sucks. It’s kind of like if I ever fought Dwayne Johnson in a cage.

Alcides Escobar, who has totally earned the right to play 348958945689 games in a row, is again starting at shortstop over the organization’s top prospect. There aren’t even words to explain how stupid this is. Play the damn shortstop prospect at shortstop! But hey, any time you can get Outcedies and his .193 average in the lineup for the 422nd straight game, you have to do it!

These guys are such fools. All of them.

But hey, here’s to a fun night of baseball, right!
