World Series moves to NL park.
Butler seems obvious to PH,
 
do you move Moustakas to 5 and keep everyone the same?
move everyone up one?
move Perez up to 5 to keep R/L?

Hard to imagine what it feels like to have a long, storied career and then finally get a chance to start in the WS.  Good luck, Tim Hudson.

Royals completely shortening their lineup. Moose 9th and Gordon and 6th was exactly what enabled them to extend rallies.
 
Dyson will be running if he gets on.
 
Guess Yost wants a LHPH real bad, too.

It's overall a great stadium, but they do that crap with bullpens on the 1st/3rd base lines, and also have home dugout at 3rd.
 
Very hipster.

Number of at bats for Alex Gordon in the 2 hole this season: ZERO.

Game 3 of the World Series is a great time to try something new, Ned.
Does where a guy hits in the order mean anything? See the ball, hit the ball. Or, do you believe in the stereotype 2-hole hitter requirements ( bunt, hit behind the runner, all that)?

Yost is lining up his lefties for LTOGYs. Lopez and Affeldt should get plenty of action today.

Aoki's batted second in every post-season game so far. Leaving Aoki out is the something new, not putting someone else in his lineup spot.

Should be a good game tonight. Guthrie vs NL lineup and Hudson vs a swing happy lineup

Yeah, got really tired of Hudson in his first LCS, and then [SIZE=13.63636302948px]Hudson in his first WS. There are hundreds of great players that never saw either. [/SIZE]

And he's been in the playoffs something like a half dozen times in his career.  He's not Ernie Banks.
 
Edit:  His team has gone to the playoffs seven times including this year.

By my count Walter Johnson was only 38 when he made his first post season appearance (World Series, of course). Further proof of the greatness of Tim Hudson.

You're not being the ball, Al.
