First of all, they called up Quentin a month and a half ago and he has 64 ABs. Oh, that sounds like regular playing time to me! They just called Young up, who still had 3 weeks left in his season at AAA, plus playoff time, and it's pretty clear he's going to get the same treatment as Quentin. You're NUTS if you think Chris Young has his CF spot sewn up next season. He will not play everyday unless he takes the limited time he is given now and tears it up, which is highly unlikely. They'll let him split time with Eric Byrnes because that is what they do.
And I can't wait until Counsell gets back. I'm sure Drew will begin to split time then, too.
Why should I have to check if I'm right when I watch almost every Dbacks game? Its actually only been exactly a month since he was called up. I think its you that needs to take your own advice.
After the Dbacks gave Quentin a week and a half to adjust to the big leagues he showed them that he deserved to play everyday. Since about the start of August he has been a regular.
As for Young, I would say although it hasn't actually been stated by the team, its a pretty safe bet that he will get the majority of the starts down the road. If you take a look at his stats and the contract that they signed Byrnes to, you can also make this realization. I would say that 20-80-15 is enough for a player at Triple A to earn an audition for a starting job in the bigs, considering the fact that he was the main piece the team got for Vazquez.
