Do you have anything to back this up or are you just making a wild and baseless statement?

Yeah, those that mention The Unit and Young are correct, IMO. Its all about how close Young is to the plate when he releases. He doesn't have overwhelming stuff otherwise but when you are a couple feet closer to the plate when you release the ball everything is magnified!!

BAA
2006 = .206
2007 = .187

...guys just can't get hits off this guy! He's legit, but won't stay under a 2 ERA. I'd have to look over my rankings but he's probably a top 10 SP for next year.

I'm not saying Chris Young isn't good, but you can't use Greg Dobbs as your example of how hard his fastball must look.

Young will have a 3+ ERA in the second half. His numbers will still end up looking ridiculous.


If you watched the at-bat I am talking about you would understand what I'm saying.

But fine. He blew fastballs by Rollins, Victorino, Rowand, and Burrell. He 2-hit the best offense in the NL and those 2 hits came from Utley. And just for the record, Dobbs is batting .286 in his first full season so hes hardly a minor leaguer.

And to all the nay-sayers, the 2nd half has already started and Young is 1-0 with a .63 ERA, 14 K's, and only 4 hits in 14 IP.

I would have to agree. He is a young SP and is just getting better from each year. So far this year he has 8 OER games. His Ks will increase and he will most likely have more than Last year. I do believe he will be a top 10 sp for a couple years now

Well it looks like an "off the table but ears always open" kind of thing. For now I can just enjoy how well Chris Young is throwing along with some other potential big arms: Sabathia, Gallardo, and Matsuzaka. Pitching situation looks pretty good right now *crosses fingers*.
