Tue, 14 Jul 2015 01:27:38 +0000

At the 2012 All-Star game, held at KC Royals home park Kauffman Stadium, Yankee star Robinson Cano captained the American League’s Home Run Derby when something completely unexpected happened: Kansas City Royals fans booed the heck out of Cano.

Kansas City Royals Welcome Back Billy Butler

Fri, 17 Apr 2015 14:00:13 +0000

When one thinks back on Billy Butler‘s tenure with the Kansas City Royals, it seems to lead back to disappointment and not reaching expectations. Butler was expected to be the next power hitter for the Royals, especially given his body type. His 29 home run season in 2012 was supposed to be the tip of […]

Billy Butler Wants to Return to the Royals Some Day

Tue, 27 Jan 2015 18:00:38 +0000

The ink is barely dry on the three year, $30 Million contract that Billy Butler signed with the Oakland A’s, but that does not really matter. Even before he has played a single game for the A’s, Butler is talking about making a return back to the Royals someday. While very few people in baseball, […]

Billy Butler’s Time with Royals Officially Over; Headed to Oakland

Wed, 19 Nov 2014 14:00:15 +0000

We all knew this was a possibility, but I never wanted to actually see it happen. Even when he became a free agent, I didn’t allow myself to be fully prepared for what was a near-inevitability. Billy Butler‘s career as a Royal is now officially over, as he’s agreed to sign a 3-year, $30 million […]

Billy Butler is a Free Agent as Royals Decline Team Option

Sat, 01 Nov 2014 19:46:07 +0000

It was a foregone conclusion that the Royals would turn down Billy Butler‘s team option for 2015. After all, $12.5 Million is a steep price to pay someone who, in a perfect world, would simply be a designated hitter for the Royals. Today, the Royals made that thought process official, as they declined Butler’s option, […]

Billy Butler is heating up at the right time

Sun, 28 Sep 2014 17:00:11 +0000

With the playoffs coming up, the Kansas City Royals need to get the bats going. Nori Aoki has been, as Rex Hudler would say, driving the bus over much of the past month. Yet, there really is only so much that the slap hitting outfielder can do. Another player has been needed to step to […]

Alex Gordon & Billy Butler Finally Have Playoffs Within Their Grasp

Mon, 22 Sep 2014 13:09:58 +0000

Billy Butler joined the Royals organization in 2004, after being drafted in the 1st round, 14th overall. A year later, Alex Gordon was drafted 2nd overall. Both players have spent their entire professional careers with the Royals, playing a combined 2,184 games for the big league club. Since debuting in 2007, they’ve suffered through five […]

Billy Butler Could Be Left Off the Postseason Roster

Wed, 17 Sep 2014 17:00:33 +0000

As things stand right now, the Kansas City Royals are a playoff team. Heading into last night’s action, they possessed a two game lead over the free falling Seattle Mariners. Even with all of their issues when it comes to scoring runs or finding relievers that are not the triumvirate of Kelvin Herrera, Wade Davis […]

Two Critical Truths For These Royals

Fri, 12 Sep 2014 23:00:04 +0000

I told myself not to watch last night’s game. The Royals were traveling back home after a dramatic and emotional win. The Royals were  starting 4A pitcher, Liam Hendriks, against the Red Sox best pitcher, Clay Buchholz. I was right.  I should have taken the night off, because the Royals sure did. As bad as […]

Has Anyone Seen Billy Butler Lately?

Fri, 12 Sep 2014 17:00:41 +0000

Remember, remember, the Eighth of September! Okay, so maybe that does not have the same cadence that the English folk verse commemorating Guy Fawkes’ attempt to blow up British Parliament in 1605, but it serves our purposes. So, why is it that we are remembering this date? Well, because that marked the last time that […]

Getting Billy Butler Back on Track

Fri, 05 Sep 2014 17:00:12 +0000

When Eric Hosmer was originally placed on the disabled list with his wrist injury, the Royals were looking for someone to take over his production in the lineup. Hosmer had been the hottest hitter in the Royals lineup, and heading down the stretch, someone needed to step up and take his place. Through the first […]

Last night, during the ESPN broadcast of the Royals/Yankees game, George Brett joined the broadcast team of Aaron Boone and Dave O’Brien in the booth during the bottom of the third. There, it was mentioned that Brett is still thought of as the face of the Kansas City Royals, despite having retired over two decades […]

Considering an Extension for Billy Butler

Wed, 20 Aug 2014 17:00:26 +0000

As the July trade deadline was fast approaching, Billy Butler was a name that had been circulating as a possible trade chip for the Royals. The Seattle Mariners, who had coveted Butler for some time, were thought to be interested in picking up the Royals designated hitter had they decided to sell. Naturally, Butler stated […]

Billy Butler is Starting to Heat Up for the Royals

Thu, 07 Aug 2014 17:00:51 +0000

Don’t look now, but Billy Butler is finally starting to hit like the Billy Butler we had come to expect over the past few years. When Eric Hosmer was placed on the disabled list, the Royals needed someone to step in and produce. Hosmer had been one of the Royals hottest hitters, and for a […]

Royals Destroy D-backs 12-2

Wed, 06 Aug 2014 04:56:54 +0000

The Kansas City Royals did themselves and their city proud on Tuesday night with an impressive 12-2 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks in Phoenix. Salvador Perez and Billy Butler both hit 3-run homers, Nori Aoki — yes, that Nori Aoki — hit a grand slam, and Danny Duffy pitched five innings of one-run baseball. I […]

Billy Butler is not as Bad Defensively as You Think

Mon, 04 Aug 2014 17:00:51 +0000

It has been three days since Eric Hosmer was placed on the disabled list with a fractured hand. While he had played sporadically over the previous week and a half due to the injury, we now know that Billy Butler is definitely going to be manning first for the next three to six weeks. Given […]

Royals Rally from Big Deficit for 7-5 Win

Sun, 27 Jul 2014 05:17:24 +0000

There were heroes aplenty as the KC Royals staged a fierce comeback from an early 5-0 deficit against the Cleveland Indians on Saturday night at Kauffman Stadium, then held on for a 7-5 victory. There was small ball, dramatic long ball, and some wicked good bullpen work as KC celebrated its fifth straight victory with […]

Billy Butler Does Not Want to Leave the Royals

Sun, 20 Jul 2014 17:00:57 +0000

Lately, Billy Butler‘s name has been circulating in trade rumors. Most notably, the Seattle Mariners are reported to have interest in the Royals designated hitter, even though any possible discussions are likely only in the beginning stages. Even if Butler is not traded, with his $12.5 Million option for next year, it is highly unlikely […]

The Seattle Mariners Have Interest in Billy Butler

Wed, 16 Jul 2014 17:00:33 +0000

Over the past month or so, most fans of the Kansas City Royals have been focused on what pieces could be added to the offense to improve the team. Despite the solid production that a platoon of Jarrod Dyson and Nori Aoki provided before Aoki was injured, that upgrade was expected to take place in […]

Billy Butler and the Royals Need Each Other

Wed, 09 Jul 2014 17:00:23 +0000

At this point, the relationship between Billy Butler and the Royals seems like that of a married couple that know things are about to end. There is an awkwardness to the relationship where both sides know that the end is coming, but are still tied to one another for now. Unlike the example above, the […]

Royals New Tension Can Be A Positive

Tue, 08 Jul 2014 20:00:37 +0000

So far, the Royals have served up a very interesting first half of the season.  They are 3.5 out of first today.  This last week before the All Star break could finish with a bang. Tonight, Jason Vargas goes up against Tampa’s Jeremy Hellickson.  Hellickson is making his 2014 debut.  Vegas likes the Royals, and […]

Billy Butler is Getting Back on Track for the Royals

Fri, 23 May 2014 17:00:06 +0000

Heading into the 2014 season, there were a number of question marks when it came to the Kansas City Royals roster. Would Eric Hosmer and Salvador Perez take that next step? Would Mike Moustakas finally develop into the power hitter the Royals hoped he would be? Could the Royals plan to put the ball in […]

Royals Country Breakfast Hard to Stomach

Mon, 12 May 2014 17:00:22 +0000

The Kansas City Royals have several leadership issues.  Almost weekly, we watch Ned Yost make inconsistent, gut decisions that fly in the face of logic.  Last week, Dayton Moore beautifully articulated his lack of understanding on base percentage value.  We can now see this weak leadership on full display from a key player, Billy Butler.

Billy Butler’s Tirade Could be Good for the Royals

Sun, 11 May 2014 20:00:42 +0000

It had to happen eventually. As someone who expects to perform at a certain level, this season has not gone how Billy Butler and the Kansas City Royals have planned. Not only has Butler struggled with the bat, but he has become the poster child to a vocal section of the Royals fanbase for the […]

Billy Butler is not Going Anywhere

Sat, 10 May 2014 23:00:09 +0000

Well, the cries demanding that Billy Butler be traded, which had been quite vocal this offseason, had died down. Unfortunately, with his slow start, those shouts have risen up once again, amidst people demanding that he either be benched or outright released. This demand that Butler be traded has become so prevalent that it even […]

Immature Royals Right Back in Survival Mode

Mon, 05 May 2014 13:00:18 +0000

Well that didn’t take long.  May, on paper, looked to be the ideal time to close the gap with the Tigers.  The Royals had a wonderful chance to kick-start this important month, starting their “ace”, James Shields, against one of Detroit’s back-end options, Rick Porcello. Shields pitched on a Friday night at home, against an inferior […]

Camden Yards Offers Billy Butler Breakout Opportunity

Fri, 25 Apr 2014 13:00:53 +0000

So far in 2014, Billy Butler hasn’t really hit like Billy Butler. His struggles with elevating the ball have been well-documented, and he’s currently posting the lowest wRC+ of any Royals’ hitter with at least 21 plate appearances. He’s still walking at a decent clip (9.2% BB rate) but he has just two extra-base hits on […]

Time to Move Billy Butler Down in the Royals Lineup

Wed, 16 Apr 2014 17:00:49 +0000

Last night’s four run outburst not withstanding, the Royals offense has struggled for most of this season. Let us face facts – 33 runs in 12 games is not conducive to winning baseball, unless a team is somehow running five Greg Maddux clones to the mound. Yet, despite their inability to score runs, the Royals […]

Accepting Billy Butler for What He Is

Sun, 30 Mar 2014 17:00:30 +0000

It feels as though Billy Butler is taken for granted. A professional hitter who stings line drives all over the diamond, it seems as though people focus more on what Butler is not instead of what he is. Aside from his 2012 season when he hit 29 home runs, it seems as though people bemoan […]

Maybe it is only the second game of the Cactus League schedule, but for Mike Moustakas and the Royals, it was a step in the right direction.

Since the position battles in spring training don’t appear to be all that exciting, I’m going through the Royals’ lineup to get an idea of how opposing pitchers will look to attack each player this season.

Stop Trying to Trade Billy Butler

It seemed that we had gotten past the thought that Billy Butler should, or would, be traded.

Yet, Butler has been the Royals most consistent […]

Passing the Torch to Eric Hosmer

Fri, 10 Jan 2014 00:00:13 +0000

During most of his tenure with the Kansas City Royals, Billy Butler has been their best hitter. In a lineup that was, at times, devoid of major league talent, Butler stood out as one of the few professional hitters on the roster. Yes, he may not hit for the power that had been expected aside […]

Billy Butler as a First Baseman

Fri, 03 Jan 2014 18:00:21 +0000

Referring to Billy Butler as a first baseman has been roughly akin to referring to me as a writer. Technically, Butler is a first baseman in the infrequent times when his position is not ‘designated hitter,’ just as I am a writer in that I can occasionally form a coherent statement when I press random […]

With the holidays approaching, I’m not expecting as many moves to be made as they have earlier in this whirlwind of an offseason.

We’ve been down this path before. For whatever reason, every summer, a pocket of Royals fans starts to crow about Billy Butler. I have to concede that Butler is not a perfect player, nor is he a perfect hitter. But he’s very good. No, he won’t steal a base for you. There’s always the fear […]
