Trade Billy Butler?

The Royals desperately need starting pitching soon. Obviously there is no way we'll compete the next 2 years without getting some pitching. Butler has proven to be a legitimate hitter if nothing else, and I think he could net a good starting pitcher. We also have Clint Robinson who continues to mash in AAA. I have no clue what Clint could contribute to the big league club, but I like the Royals chances better with Clint at DH and whatever starting pitcher comes along in a Butler deal, then if we just kept Butler. Do I think this ever happens? No. But I'd like it to. Especially with teams like the Pirates who are in buy mode that have Lyle Overbay at 1st hitting .236/.304/.357. So I guess I'm just asking if anyone else would be on board with this idea?
