Of course, some of these players may miss the game due to injury. Cabrera and Stanton are locks to be out. Holliday is on the disabled list but may return to the Cardinals’s lineup in time for the game. And after all the hullabaloo, only four Kansas City Royals made the starting lineup. Pour one out for Omar Infante.
