01:09 AM ET 11.15 | Earlier this month, it was reported that the Kansas City Royals were willing to listen to trade offers for designated hitter/first baseman Billy Butler, which apparently has the Seattle Mariners intrigued. The 27-year-old Butler had another solid offensive season for the Royals in 2013, posting a .289 average with 15 home runs and 82 RBI though with free agency looming after 2015, the Royals may be trying to squeeze out every drop of value in regards to Butler. Multiple teams have reportedly expressed interest in Butler, which includes the aforementioned Mariners.

Country Breakfast needs to live in a place with lots of sausage, ham, bacon, and griddle cakes...plus he is really fat now and his production dropped dramatically last season. Maybe it's just a chance to buy low, but he really is a big slob and getting bigger.

Why trade the face of your franchise who you have lock up through the 15 season for some mid level prospects.

He's 27 in a 45 yr old body.
