I understand the money they're paying Sweeney, but Sweeney can be there Captain from the bench.
Mike Sweeney will not be activated before the All-Star break, manager Buddy Bell said Tuesday.
Sweeney hoped to return from an inflamed right knee on Friday. Billy Butler apparently will stick around through the weekend.
Sweeney not coming up this week could really be a blessing in disguise for Butler. Maybe this is where they realize even after Sweeney returns that Butler needs to stay up.
Solution: Butler plays first base and Gload gets sent down for Sweeney. Butler may struggle at the beginning from first base, but 1st doesen't take much distance movement. Something Butler can do perfectly. To be honest, does KC think they can get any worse? They need to play there young talent, by playing there old guys they're just wasting good years of a WHAT COULD BE- a rebuilding process.-
