Living's mostly wasting time: GameThread for Game 106: Royals @ Jays

Nick Turchiaro-USA TODAY Sports
Game 4 of the series with the Royals, this has been a terrific series. Two very good teams. Course, I'd like us to be playing a lousy team for a bit. But it is nice to see that we can go toe to toe with one of the best teams in baseball.
We have what, pretty much, will be our A batting lineup. Plus or minus Chris Colabello....Smoak hasn't been hitting lately, but then neither has Chris. I'd still rather have Smoak get regular at bats for a month and see what happens but I can understand not being excited with Smoak's bat the way he looked yesterday.

Today's Lineups

Alcides Escobar - SS Troy Tulowitzki - SS
Ben Zobrist - LF Josh Donaldson - 3B
Lorenzo Cain - CF Jose Bautista - RF
Eric Hosmer - 1B Edwin Encarnacion - DH
Kendrys Morales - DH Chris Colabello - 1B
Salvador Perez - C Russell Martin - C
Alex Rios - RF Kevin Pillar - CF
Cheslor Cuthbert - 3B Ryan Goins - 2B
Omar Infante - 2B Ben Revere - LF
Edinson Volquez - RHP R.A. Dickey - RHP
The title is from an old Townes Van Zandt song "To Live is to Fly". Townes was a terrific song writer who died far to young.

Remember we have rules here. Mostly don't be terrible (it seems like a small thing to ask). No arguing with the Mods, you have a problem, email Tom, but in the thread, let's not debate rules.
