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.
I've tried to stay away from this thread because it makes me sick to my stomach!!! Either play him here or send him down to AAA and play him there!!!!!!!!!!! I have no idea what they are doing with him, its unbelievable they are just letting him rot on the bench.
As to the quote above....Butler will see plenty of time at 1B, whether thats here or in AAA. Once Shealy comes back, which will probably be sometime this weekend, Butler will probably be sent back down to AAA. You definately won't see Butler in OF again more than likely....he'll be 1B/DH from here on out I'd say. I have no idea what the hell they are doing with Gordon at 1B??? Can we screw around with guys more please?? Unbelievable!!
