"Royals purchased the contract of outfielder Billy Butler from Triple-A Omaha.
So now both Alex Gordon and Butler are going to be accruing service time in a year in which the Royals are going absolutely nowhere. Having both arbitration eligible after 2009 is going to hurt the GM Dayton Moore's chances of putting a competitive team on the field when the club may actually be in position to contend. Butler is probably ready to hit in the majors right now, but he'll be a significant liability in left field. The team isn't going to give up on designated hitter Mike Sweeney yet, so this looks like a bad move all around. Still, AL-only leaguers should go ahead and pick him up."
And by the way, you experts out there, would you rather have Butler or Hunter Pence on your fantasy roster? Please don't answer "both", I can't...
