jake_harv88 wrote:My question is, is why does alex gordon get treated completely different than Butler. Not only does Gordon get to start the year in the majors but the organization stays heavily invested and lets him struggle through the first 2 months of the season. Then when Butler does get called up he doesn't play everyday, and at the first sign of a struggle he gets sent back down. Isn't Butler supposed to be a better hitter than Gordon? If they were going to stick with gordon for so long why didn't they give that same priviledge to Butler??


Because Butler is a couple years younger and doesn't have a defensive position to play.

Probably not until Sept callups. They have him playing alot of 1B now and they will want him to work on that. Not to mention he is struggling a little at the plate lately.

Actually we would love to get a better defensive CFer than DeJesus he's more of a LFer on a good team. He's a bit overrated defensively in CF.

I still think Alex Gordon is the top prospect in baseball.

doesn't matter how fast you are if you are mediocre defensively, have no power and can't steal 1b.


:? i never said he could do those things. thats why hes just "intriguing" and not owned in any leagues at this point.

but, everything you said about him really doesnt matter. look at juan pierre. he has NO arm, NO power, and has a pretty mediocre OBP as well. gathright could easily be pierre down the line. hes shown before that he can have a high avg, albeit with a low OBP. i dont see why he cant be a pierre/taveras/duffy type of player.

You're comparing Gathright to the worst everyday CF in baseball. :o

Gathright got called up and Angel Berroa (more worthless than a pile of laundry manning SS according to Rob Neyer) got sent down.

Maybe someday Gathright can be that good, but he isn't there yet. This was a guy who wasn't able to hold down the #9 hole on the 2006 Royals.
