Gordon and Perez need to snap out of their offensive funks and put the damn team on their backs already.

Perez has been in a slump for about 10-14 games but Gordon has been struggling for almost 2 months now.

yep time for someone to step up. I thought that might be Butler, but that doesnt appear to be in the cards. Hosmer is starting, but its time for Gordon and Sal to help out... Moose has the ability to go on a 2-3 week hot streak as well

Dear Billy,

You suck so much I'm playing Nori at DH and Raul at first tonight. If you want to take the rest of the season off to go fishing, no one with the team will object.

Sincerely,

Ned

SSS and blah blah blah, but post ASB Gordon has a .385/.484/.423 line with 1 SB.  That included his unfortunate 0-5 performance last night, but he wasn't alone in that regard.

This type of lineup change s.hould be a clear message to Butler that he is on the way out.  When a team is struggling like KC is and their starting DH is benched for Aoki and Ibanez, that's not good.  Butler has played almost every day in past two years.  Now he is out of the lineup for those two

All joking aside if they arent going to play Billy. which im fine with then they need to trade him even if its just a salary dump. Billy has whined to the media before when he didnt play in a couple interleague games. I cant imagine this will go over well with him and we dont need any clubhouse issues

Nothing screams offensive juggernaut like having someone hitting under .200 batting fifth.  Unless it is having someone with no home runs so far this season starting at DH.

for several reasons

1. The only reason to have Billy on the roster is for him to hit. If hes not hitting, and you are done with him your better off using the roster spot on someone who can contribute in different ways(colon for example)

2. Billy has never been shy about voicing his displeasure oublicly about sitting during interleague games. Do you really think hes going to sit quitely about being benched in AL games? very doubtful

3. You save Glass a little money which is seems to be somewhat important

KC's relationship with Butler is only going to get worse especially as he continues hitting like he does.  I'd put him on the market and see what the interest is.  That would be better to get a return than just to cut him loose in the off season.  I don't see Dayton doing that but this year, Butler isn't helping the offense.  He's one of the biggest problems.  They could use the cash to off set a deal for Byrd or Rios.

He needs to get in the kitchen and get some more BBQ sauce made.  that stuff worked wonders last year.

My guess is billy has no value. Seriously, if KC is
benching you, how much value can you have? Maybe
if we took on all his salary and paid his buyout, we MIGHT
get a lottery ticket.

I agree with this. I just don't see why another team would want to pay him for the rest of the season. It doesn't get more worthless than a DH whose been benched in favor of Nori Aoki.

Heres a thought... Butler included in a trade with Texas for Rios? just as really a throw in?

Can't you imagine Butler and Fielder together? That's a whole lot of humanity
