Also a good point that if Hale finds a manager's job this winter, don't be surprised if Butterfield joins his buddy Showalter as 3B coach in Baltimore, his home town.
I was led to believe, by Nick Cafardo, that Butterfield is from New England? Maine IIRC.

Speaking of Cafardo, he just pretty much cited a sonnet about his love for Brad Ausmus and how he believed he was the next Robin Ventura (young manager who finds success right away). Quote; "If I was AA, I call Brad Ausmus and say you're my manager. I skip the interviews and everything, and just tell him he's my man." Sounds like a love story.
