Michael Young - What Happened???

Postby stomperrob » Wed Jun 16, 2004 6:28 pm

He started out so great - the last 30 days he's got 9 R's, 7 RBI's, 3 SB's, and a .272 Avg. Is he gonna rebound???? What can we expect the rest of the season???
;-D or :-t

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 ;-D

Yeah, just be glad you did not draft Aurillia, Rollins, Furcal, Cintron, or, Berroa, and run with Young.

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.

I bet this says alot about the people who were all about trading guys like Boone, Soriano, and Tejada for Michael Young at the beginning of the season.

Hes just going through a slump, like Beltran. He wasnt going to keep up that torrid pace, but he'll start playing better soon. Hopefully.

eftda wrote:ESPN has him projected for 24 homeruns and hit over .320 which is great production from any SS.. since this years crop; Jeter, Nomar, etc.. is very thin.

ESPNs' Projected Stats for M. Young


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". ;-D
[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]

I have him and I am holding on to him, I am a HUGE fan of the TEX infield, I think that could turn into one of the best fast, and for years to come.

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.
