You don't want Butler manning 1B for you. Foot on the bag Billy! I like Big Butlers and I cannot lie. OK that was a lie. I do not like big, fat Billy Butlers. How can a guy hit Home Runs and steal bases when his man breasts are flopping all around? Do not pay for the career year. Butler's HR total is pointing in the same direction as his missle titties; straight down. First Base is as deep as ever so there is no reason to reach, overspend or invest heavily at the position. My tenth best 1B: Ike Davis; my tenth best 2B: David Eckstein. Will Albert Pujols don the MDM uniform? Unlikely. And with that, off we go.   This post is also known as The Misadventures of Adam Done.
