The Royals may have lost their first two games of the season, but they’ll return home Friday to an anticipated sellout crowd of 40,000 with hopes of making the playoffs for the first time since 1985.

KC, whose 86 victories last season were the most since 1989, brings back its youthful core, and it added some key veteran pieces in outfielder Nori Aoki and infielder Omar Infante, resulting in a record $92 million payroll.

We'll have a team of reporters and editors live tweeting from the stadium starting midday. Or you can follow us on Twitter.
