The Royals hope to miss starting pitcher Cliff Lee when the Cleveland Indians arrive tonight at Kauffman Stadium (Interstate 70 and the Blue Ridge Cutoff) for the beginning of a three-game series. The 2008 Cy Young winner tormented the Royals last year, compiling a 5-0 record. Of course, the 2008 Royals were a pretty feeble offensive bunch; for Pete' sake, Ross Gload made 418 plate appearances. The good news for Royals' fans is that Gload was sent packing, and the Indians' bullpen can't get anyone out. Tonight's game starts at 7. The first 20,000 fans get T-shirts bearing George Brett's visage.
