    Royals extend Billy Butler, 4 yrs., $30M

    http://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2011/0...-contract.html

    So what are your thoughts on this, compared to the Votto deal. This deal buys out all three arb. years, and one FA year.

    Votto and Butler aren't really fair comps, IMO.

    Oh, absolutely not. I wasn't saying they were similar players. Just curious about your thoughts on the value of this deal compared to the value of the Votto deal.

    i agree. however if butler was playing in a more hitter friendly park is numbers would be closer. also the royals lineup is awful.
    there's nothing like bowling a 300 game! 13 now and retired.

    Butler is only 24.
