I'd be rather surprised if he got the 5 necessary appearances (starts?) at first to satisfy the Yahoo! requirement.


It shouldn't be hard to get 5 starts at 1B. Hell, any chance they get to stick Sweeney back out there they will do it. There will be plenty of days where Sweeney will get a day off and they will put Shealy at DH to give Butler some PT at 1B.....its pretty much a given. The 7 games they have run Butler out there in LF is 7 more games than just about everyone other team would give him. Hell, they have thrown LaRue at 3B already this year.....Gordon at SS....Pena at 2B....they continue to run Brown anywhere in the OF...... :-°


I wouldn't be shocked to see Butler in 3B sometime this season the way Buddy is running the team :-t

Buddy Bell said to reporters yesterday that Billy Butler will be getting alot more time at 1B during practice/warmups. You probably won't see him much, if at all, in the OF from here on out. Look for him at 1B/DH from here on out.
