If Billy Butler doesn’t get another at-bat he will have finished his MLB career after making just under $60,000,000. I know, it’s fascinating. 2016 wasn’t the best year for Billy. He was making $11,667,000 (the most in his career) and ended up having a disastrous August where he fought a teammate and was eventually released on September 11. The A’s are still on the hook for Butler’s $11,667,000 2017 salary so he’ll have a decent summer if no teams step forward and sign him to a Spring Training deal.
All that said, Billy’s selling his Arizona house. Maybe it’s a sign that the career is over at 30. And it’s a nice, big house. Almost 6,000 sq. ft. big. And it can be yours for $2,050,000.
From Billy’s realtor:
The living room & dining room look out to a spectacular backyard with heated pool & spa, grotto and water slide, large built in BBQ, power sunshades, outdoor fireplace, fire bowl, front courtyard w/ fireplace and water feature. Custom built-ins in FR & garage, wood shutters, elegant drapery/cornices, designer paint, Control 4 Home automation w/cameras & 4 car garage complete this home.
Let’s be honest here…the pool is the focus. It’s nice. It’s refreshing. And you can jump in after using the putting green.
Other highlight’s of Billy’s Scottsdale house:
• 5 beds, 5 baths
• Nearly 1 acre of land to spread out a little bit, stay away from your neighbors
• Has a kids’ wing…you know how important that is when you want to ignore the kids
• 5.3 miles to Whole Foods
• 13 miles from Bliss Showclub
Mortgage: You’re looking at $8,100 before you get to pool boy service, maid service and HVAC
