This is not the news of the hour.

There is other news of the hour. Go look at that news. Talk of that news. What the hell is going on in Fenway today?

Lineup

BOSTON RED SOX KANSAS CITY ROYALS
Pedro Ciriaco, 3B Lorenzo Cain, CF
Jacoby Ellsbury, CF Alcides Escobar, SS
Dustin Pedroia, 2B Alex Gordon, LF
David Ortiz, DH Billy Butler, DH
Adrian Gonzalez, 1B Jeff Francoeur, RF
Cody Ross, RF Mike Moustakas, 3B
Ryan Lavarnway, C Brayan Pena, C
Mike Aviles, SS Eric Hosmer, 1B
Scott Podsednik, LF Johnny Giavotella, 2B

Look! It's a lineup! David Ortiz is in it! On a normal day, we might talk about how he's still batting fourth with Gonzalez fifth all to facilitate Pedro Ciriaco batting leadoff, but this is not a normal day.

Go, look at the real news. What are you still doing here?
