Billy Butler offers Royals one constant: He can hit

The Royals’ expectations for designated hitter Billy Butler, after last year, are higher than ever. Fair or not, Butler is generally assumed to be the surest thing in the Royals’ arsenal. Those who know him well can confirm Butler is rarely humble when it comes to hitting (and will add he doesn’t need to be). Those who know him at all can attest he isn’t often quiet.
