well, 24 hours ago in this thread there was a post talking about some scrub being added, but butler not yet available, and i didn't see anything between that post and here that intimated that he was available, so i thought i'd put the info down...i have no idea at what moment he was actually added to the database, it was just the first that i had seen.


Gotay is not a scrub.

He's no Butler, but he isn't a scrub.

Not fantasy relevant, but not a scrub.


you got me...i plead ignorance... !+)

The lone bright spot on an otherwise putrid day from the Royals.

I like his chances.

Definitely. Of course depends on your roster but he could be a very serviceable 3rd outfielder on any team.

He won't play much bench. If he stays on the big club (i doubt he gets sent down), he will play.
