Kansas City, MO (CHN) - After a 14 month engagement, Alcides Escobar is 'finally going through with it' according to friends and family of the young shortstop. But you would never know it from the international media; or so says Escobar's fiance Maria Fuentes, who met Alcides in a Venezuelan night club when the two were just 18 years old.

Still, despite the lack of attention, the wedding is still set for this Saturday at the Kansas City Hilton, most of the Royal Players are said to have been invited. Royals Manager Ned Yost believes that Escobar would be getting a lot more attention if he (Alcides) was hitting anywhere near the league average for shortstops or if his slugging percentage was "not a fucking joke".
