Royals starting Edinson Volquez in Game 1 of World Series


When asked Saturday why he was holding off on announcing the World Series rotation Royals manager Ned Yost said: “Because I’m being a little bit of a punk.”

Today he finally revealed his plans, which include Edinson Volquez in Game 1, followed by Johnny Cueto in Game 2, Yordano Ventura in Game 3, and Chris Young in Game 4.

Assuming no changes in plans, that would also mean Volquez in Game 5, Cueto in Game 6, and Ventura in Game 7.

Volquez vs. Mets right-hander Matt Harvey will kick things off tomorrow night in Kansas City.
