then Pujols went and prayed for the guy.

all that said, I kind of wish we could see a slow mo replay.
Jeez, it was brutal. I like the guy and have him on my team. Glad he is ok, because that could have been a killer or a career ender (ala Juan Encarnacion)

So . . . NOW has anyone heard how long Young may be out?

Man, just watched the video. It's definitely brutal, but I've gotta say that it's extremely lucky that Pujols just sort of threw his bat out at the ball. Had he taken a full swing it could have easily killed Young.

Hope he recovers well and quickly. And that it doesn't follow him to the mound. Have to wonder if most guys can ever really get over that experience...

Rotoworld via the SD Tribune says he could be headed to the DL. The GM is the guy saying that. Frankly, I would be shocked if he didn't. The Pads are out of it and they need to be careful with Young.

When it hit him, it sounded like a ball coming off a bat. Nasty stuff, hope he'll be O.K.

The bigger thing I am worried about is whether he will be affected by this unfortunate injury in the long term. I am not a sports psychologist, but I think when you get hit by a baseball going 90 mph (or whatever speed it was), it is bound to have an affect on you. Might make you gun shy facing batters as in the back of your mind, you are always going to think what happened before. I really hope he doesn't get affected by this for the rest of his career. With his peripherals, once he learns to pitch more efficiently, he could be an ace. In the short term, I would be very surprised if he doesn't go on the DL. Again, I am not a Doctor, but a broken nose is bound to affect your breathing, which will affect the way you pitch. I have Young in two leagues (in fact, I got him for Oswalt in my money league a few weeks ago) so I hope he comes back off the DL fully healed and with no psychological trauma.
