Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"(Joey) Butler plays with a scowl that makes it look like he's not having fun, and he keeps relatively quiet in the clubhouse. But (Kevin) Cash said it's all a ruse, as he's one of the funniest and most entertaining players on the team. 'He's hilarious,' Cash said. 'A lot of personality.' An example, from a recent exchange on the team bus: Cash told him, 'You're in the lineup tomorrow, you should be excited.' Butler replied, 'No, you should be excited.'" - Staff Writer Marc Topkin in the Tampa Bay Times (06/27/2015, Rays Tales: Joey Butler's long journey to prove himself , Page 4)
