Just the playoffs? Hardly. Butler says Royals are aiming for top seed

"It was tough," he recalls. "You got to the ballpark .... I mean we had good players, but there wasn't a feeling we were going to win. We just kind of hoped we would." Oh, how times...

On Billy Butler, The Royals, And Accountability

If you’ve read this blog for any length of time, you know I am a Billy Butler defender. With roughly eight weeks left in his Kansas City Royals career, I guess I’m going to go down with that particular ship. Even last year, Butler has been a valuable player for the Royals, despite his flaws. I wish at some point the Royals had put more offensive talent around him; Butler was...

Royals roar back from 5-0 down, whip Tribe again for fifth straight

Billy Butler had a sense the Royals weren't intimidated in the least after falling behind 5-0 to the Cleveland Indians on Saturday night. "We didn't care," Butler said. "We knew we could come back ... "If you have the slightest inkling that you can't come back, you won't. But not one single guy in that dugout felt that way." And with that...

Billy Butler willing to rework contract to remain with Royals

The 2014 season has not gone the way that Billy Butler had imagined. Owed a $12.5 million club option for 2015 there is no guarantee he will remain with the Kansas City Royals beyond this season. That of course does not mean that the 28-year-old Butler wants out of Kansas City. “If the option doesn’t work, I’d be more than happy to renegotiate in any type of way. I’ve always...

Mariners talking to Royals about Billy Butler trade

A few years ago Billy Butler was snubbed in the Home Run Derby. Things have changed since that time with Butler looking nothing like the player he was in 2012. This year the 28-year-old Butler is hitting just .273/.325/.355 with three home runs and 36 RBI in 93 games. While the Kansas City Royals are considering adding pieces to their team ahead of the trade deadline, Butler may...
