Michael Young, sell high?

If someone took Posada in the 2nd round, they should be smacked. They are better players you could take in that round. Also wasnt last year Youngs first full season? So your averages with him and Jeter are sort of flawed. Of course Gucci you like Jeter, since you look like a Yankees fan :-D .

personally, i think this is the highest youngs value is going to be this year and while i do think he'll be solid, there's no way he keeps this up... posada is the best catcher out there and if you have a chance to land him for a streaking player you should do so...

no, not THAT kind of streaking player...

Yeah a lot of people seem to think that, practically everybody, and once they see that he's going to keep hitting everyone is going to change their mind and Young's value will go up, in my opinion.

show me something that will prove he will keep hitting like this. The best defense anyone has provided for Young over Jeter is that I am biased as a yankees fan. Meanwhile I provide statiscal analysis on both players, objectively. And don't tell me I'm biased, in fantasy baseball they are both just sets off numbers to me. And to whoever said my stats don't mean much for Young since he has only been in the majors 1 year, why don't you at least check because he has had 2 full seasons.

i may be a little biased too since Im a yankee and a jeter hater :-D . Dont forget Micheal Young his hitting that golden age for hitters, 27. Dual posistion eligibility is awesome too.

personally i don't believe in the "golden hitter age." Maybe you can prove it to me, but I really think it is just a theory that became the normal train of thought. I have not seen conclusive evidence and until I do, I will not believe it. (Bonds is better now than at 27 right?)

Even if it is true, Jeter would still be in his prime at 29 right?
