You couldnt expect him to keep up that pace could you?? However he will still be in the upper echelon of ss's for the rest of the season. Just dont expect first round numbers and be glad you dont have Jeter
Some of you guys are amazing. The guy hits .270 for a month (which is hardly miserable) and it's "what's wrong, can he rebound?" Jeez, get real and quit whining. Young's a real nice player, but if you expected him to hit .350 all year, you're nuts.
its a very crude "projection" if you wanna call it that.. assuming if he continued on his current pace.. basically all current his stats multiplied to fit 162 games. but i agree.. his relevance in all 5 cats and dual eligibility as both SS and 2B makes him real valuable even if he doent put up numbers like a real life "stud".
[size=10]Manny Ramirez....$20 million
Pedro Martinez....$17.5 million
Curt Schilling...$12 million (and a $2 million bonus)
Never hearing a Yankee fan chant 1918 again...priceless. [/size]
At SS, I'd prefer to have Jeter, even more so that Young has appeared to come back to earth. That said, the only SS I'd rather have than Young are A-Rod of course, Nomar, Jeter and Tejada with Renteria right there with Young.
