Butler On Pujols: 'He Is What I Aspire To Be'

Were you ever wondering what Billy Butler's idol player is? The type of player he'd be if he could change anything?

"Every time he goes up there, he hits the ball hard. He is what I aspire to be. I want the pitcher to fear me every time I go up there. I hope they already do now, but nowhere near his level."

He considers it an honor to share first base with Pujols.

Let's hope Butler starts playing like Pujols does in Kauffman. Pujols has 12 homers in 28 career games at Kauffman.
