Butler Called up today to the Royals

Postby RoxSox8 » Sat Jun 28, 2008 6:13 pm

Thought people might be interested in this post.

"The Royals have reportedly called up Billy Butler and placed Alberto Callaspo on the disabled list for evaluation and treatment of an unspecified medical condition.
Since when is being an idiot a medical condition? It's good to see Butler back after he tore up Triple-A pitching for a month. He should be a major asset in AL-only leagues the rest of the way, and mixed leaguers need to keep an eye on him. Jun. 28 - 5:20 pm et"-Rotoworld

Realistically, how many AB's you think he could see?

That's my question. With Gload holding down 1st and Guillen DHing, when will Butler see the plate?

Well he is starting tonight so I threw Cantú to the bench to give Butler a shot.

Meh, I'm over drinking the Butler Kool Aide. I'll let someone else wait for his power to surface...

3-5 last night. They really need to put him in an RBI producing spot.


Wait, that would mean they'd have to trade him, wouldn't it? O:-)

Yeah, because Jose Guillen has already laid claim to all those RBIs, and there isn't room for another run producer in that lineup ;-)
