Mouth-watering article on Delmon Young

Postby Y`s Guy » Wed Feb 22, 2006 10:41 pm

Man, this kid is a crown jewel for any keeper league. I will be in angst wondering when to pounce on him in my H2H keeper leaghue with CBSSportsline. I think his spring will dictate that.

Sweet-swingin' Delmon

Hey, if Carl Crawford is asking him for batting tips then what's that tell ya?

Tampa Bay needs a new hitting coach. :-D

Good read. Thanks for the link.

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

Interesting. It should be fun watching him play when he eveutually gets called up this year.
Here's the pitch on the way, a swing and a belt! Left field! Way back! BLUE JAYS WIN!

I think the excitement I have for this guy would be not considered normal by non-fantasy baseballers... :-o :-b

He said he is excited to be back on the field, in good shape after adding about 15 pounds of muscle

Nice little note about him too not talked about. ;-D

They need to trade Huff for Huff's sake, and get Delmon into the lineup.

I hope I can get him in my keeper draft this year without having to reach too soon.

No kidding, Tampa's situation doesn't make sense. They have tons of ready to go OF talent, and a lack of pitching. Hm, so difficult to know what to do in this situation, maybe, oh I don't know, trade for some pitching!?
...Boston papers now and then suffer a sharp flurry of arithmetic on this score; indeed, for Williams to have distributed all his hits so they did nobody else any good would constitute a feat of placement unparalleled in the annals of selfishness. -Updike

Or just let Huff play 3B full time like he wants to.

Huff makes 5 million or so / year and both HR and avg dropped last year. Forecaster has him about 9 runs above replacement. I can't see anybody really needing him that much at that price. Maybe if the Bosox hadn't picked up Lowell they could have fit him in?

I suspect that anybody anybody w/ pitchers is probably holding out until Delmon get's cranky and demands a trade so he can play. I can't see why they wouldn't just stick Young in somewhere though.

Checking Yahoo, Young IS listed as the RF for the Rays though? Gomes is nowhere to be seen? :-?
