Nice. Thats great news, thanks for the info. ;-D

Thanks. I am trying to make some decent ones with what I have. I have a very old program that I use for them, so anytime I get a compliment it tells me I am doing something right. :-)

1B? Butler hasn't played 1B once since this was thread was started and he is out of the lineup for the 2nd time in 3 days. Costa is in LF, Sweeney DH and Gload at 1B today.

Is anyone else concerned with his playing time? Will he be inevitably be sent down when Shealy returns?

What is goin on? Let Billy play. If he's benched tomorrow or gets no Runs or RBIs then Im dropping him. I've come close many times but then I go read my BP and see the Pujols comparable and think there is a chance he goes on a tear. :-b

Still 9 games away or 5 starts from 1b elgibilty

Yeah it is frustrating to not see him in the lineup again. It would be nice to see him play some 1B too. I understand people getting upset and wanting to drop him, but I am in a keeper so I will just have to ride out the bumps in the road. I would advise those of you who have him keeper leagues to be patient too. From what I read about this kid it will be worth it. ;-D

What I've noticed is that Gordon has been getting playing time at 1B for the Royals. Four appearances at the start of the weekend. He might get 1B eligibility too.....I've got both Gordon and Butler on my bench right now. Butler doesn't fit in my OF, and Gordon is my future 3B, but hasn't been hitting yet. I'm hoping to keep both guys, but we'll see.

Well Gload is going on the DL, if Butler doesn't play some 1B now I don't know when it's going to happen. I just hope he can get 20 games at OF or 1B next year so he's not DH only.

Butler will not play 1st base. Sweeney and Gordan are going to be switching off there.

More then likely you will see Butler sit 2-3 games a week when Sweeney can't play 1st.

The Royals knew Butler sucked in the field, yet the called him up saying they would live with his mistakes to get him int he lineup. Well that obviously wasn't the case.

Butler sitting out again! 8-o ...and against another RHP in Haren.

Costa LF, Gordon 1B(German 3B), Sweeney DH. Is there any doubt about who'll be sent down when Shealy gets back?

Yeah its starting to get old. If I wasnt in a keeper I probably would have dropped him by now. Any KC fans know what the deal is? Is this going to be a regular thing?
