Dodgers @ Royals Aug. 12, 2022: LA vs. the KC Bobby Witts

Return of the lazy Game Thread as the Dodgers open a 3-game weekend series against the Royals of Kansas City.

Max Muncy‘s hand isn’t dead. Huzzah!

The Dodgers did have to make a roster move prior to the game.

Here’s hoping everything ends up being OK with Austin Barnes and his family.

Rylan Bannon, we hardly knew ye (again).

Some interesting young talent in the Royals’ lineup — specifically Bobby Witt. The kid is the real deal. Also, MJ Melendez, Vinnie Pasquantino and Nick Pratto are guys to watch. This team could be quite intriguing in a few years.

First pitch happened a few minutes ago. Enjoy.
