Is Michael Young gonna do anything this year ?!

Postby mayor quimby » Fri Jul 27, 2012 11:17 am

Any thoughts on that?

I've been sitting on him for the whole year and it's been nothing but frustration. He chased the batting title last year! I'm thinking of just trading him for a bag of baseballs.

Are there any optimists out there who can cheer me up?

For over the last several seasons, many experts and owners expected this. Looks like it finally happened. :-/

It is true that many people spoke of Young's eventually fall into mediocrity, but the real cause of it this year has been his poor performance at home.

Career at Arlington: .321/.369/.483/.852
This season: .250/.282/.313/.589

Usually you can count on Young to rake at home (not that he was terrible on the road at all) but he seems to be struggling especially at home this year. His numbers on the road are closer to his career slash lines so if you're still sitting on him you can eek some value out by only starting him on the road for a while.
