I'm not sure about Mitch Moreland batting ninth. Not that it makes a big difference (it might even be a plus), it just seems weird and surprising.

Once again, another really bad defensive outfield. For a flyball pitcher in Derek Holland. Just close your eyes with the Royals swing.

Jeff Francoeur faces Texas for the first time since being a part of their World Series run, Matt Treanor has to wait until tomorrow.
