Charest and Short are the players that deserve to be on this team from Butler. They MADE LeMay look good. You'll see next year when he shows us NOTHING because they're not there to catch whatever he throws up there. Unless, of course, he's throwing to his younger brother (who should, by rule, be at Independence)who does happen to be the "real deal".
