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.
