Young needs to be traded, Thames should have played last year and would be decent DH. Detroit really needs a left handed bat
Nothing is idiotproof to a sufficiently motivated idiot

It would be a miracle to trade Young. A fat guy who can't stay healthy on the wrong side of 30 making $8 million dollars and can't play in the field. If only it were that easy...

Long term, yes, he isn't much to speak of as a regular in the field, but while he's red hot with the bat, you have to run the guy out there at DH. Why waste a hot streak? Give me Thames over Alexis Gomez anyday, not that that's saying very much :-b

Agreed. It is impossible to question anything Leyland is doing right now, that would be like a 31 win team's coach berating the team. Ozzie is such an azzhoe. Anyway, you do have to ride a hot streak and Thames is hot right now. Hope he can carry that into the Yankees series.
