So I see a story on Yahoo Sports by Gordon Edes in which he contrasts this year's underachievers with players who have overachieved, position by position.  I just know I'm going to be reading about our beloved Kendry when first base is discussed, but lo and behold, Edes lets us know how incredibly Billy Butler has performed this year in Kansas City.  His reasoning: 45 doubles.  That's right.  Butler has hit 13 fewer home runs, driven in 21 runs less, has a lower OPS and slugging percentage in 30 more AB's than Morales, but apparently his five extra doubles puts him over the top.  He then goes on to tell us what a great accomplishment hitting 45 doubles is at the age of 23, but then immediately lists SEVEN CURRENT players who have achieved the same feat(?)- two of which had done it TWICE!  And we all know how important those 45 doubles have been to the Royals this year.
