yeah, i heard that chris young wasn't terribly good at holding runners on. that being said, 5 in 3PAs is just downright ridiculous.

Not half as ridiculous as the "Natinals" organization. Again, sorry, I just can't handle it.

Amusingly, I was going to bench him this week (weekly lineup locks), but word on Tulo sitting for a couple of days forced me to shuffle things a bit and Fowler ended up starting for me.

Uh, looks good. And our league doesn't even count SB. I imagine he'll keep the leadoff spot until he goes into a strikeout slump (if that even happens... yeesh).

He seems to be a similar player to Nyjer Morgan right now, only with a bit more pop.

Who do you guys prefer going forward?

What was his K:BB ratio like in the minors?

So far on the season it's a very respectable 8:7 (including his 2 BB's tonight).

Is it possible this kid will have a very quick rise to stardom ala Braun and Longoria, or will he cool down considerably ala Bruce and Upton.

I don't see the power to compare him to Braun or Longoria, but he's really starting to remind me of Matt Kemp....

Man I just dropped him a few days ago. He would have been in my Util spot tonight if I kept him. DOH!
Here's the pitch on the way, a swing and a belt! Left field! Way back! BLUE JAYS WIN!
