Billy Butler wins Outstanding Designated Hitter award!

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- The honors keep coming for Billy Butler, who can now clear space in his trophy case for the 2012 Edgar Martinez Outstanding Designated Hitter Award.

The balloting wasn’t close.

Butler received 80 of 84 first-place votes in balloting by a panel of beat writers, broadcasters and American League public-relations departments. Nominees consisted of the 24 players who had at least 100 at-bats as a DH.

Not bad for a guy who, as recently as 2011, chafed at the idea of being a full-time DH....

3. When will he be called up to the National League?

I didn't know they gave awards for part-time ball players.
