Editor's note: The temperature gauge is a Bill James-created statistic that measures how hot or cold hitters are. We will spotlight Red Sox and opposing team temperatures on game days. At 9-18, the Kansas City Royals could be described as anything but hot. But despite the team's slow start, third baseman Mike Moustakas continues to be a bright spot. Moustakas is KC's leading hitter, entering Monday's contest batting at a .305 clip. The 23-year-old is one of a number of talented young players on the Royals, although the team is still trying to put it all together on the field....

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Kauffman Stadium will never be Mike Aviles' first home. As far as the Red Sox shortstop is concerned, he'll always represent New York City first and foremost.
