in the postgame thread a lot of people are saying that ozzie has a legitmate reason to appeal this game because the royals pitched someone who wasn't on the lineup card. i have searched, and this is the only rule i can find:

"A Designated Hitter for the pitcher must be selected prior to the game and must be included in the lineup cards presented to the Umpire in Chief. "

anyone have any better information?

EDIT:
Nevermind. My bad:

"3.1 LINEUP CARDS
Each manager should write the name of each eligible player on the face of his club's batting order card in addition to furnishing the starting lineup. However, a manager's failure to list an eligible player does not prevent that player from entering the game, nor is such failure grounds
for protest, as the listing of eligible players is simply a courtesy."

So Ozzie's got nothing. The game should have been over anyway.

Yeah, the way we played, we deserved to loose. But I am trying to forget this one, bring on the O's.
