1. youngs shoulder is 100% intact.
2. young is 2b eligible
3. young hasnt had an 0-32 slump this year (or any year)
4. jeter is batting an pathetic .179 while his obp is at .250
5. jeter has a grand total of 1 HR, 8 RBI, 10 runs, and 9 walks. if i had anyone on my team with that statline id drop them whether its barry bonds, derek jeter, or rick ankiel.
6. jeters a yankee.

Right now the only guy I can think of is Carlos Beltran, who was 27 last year. oh and if jeter didnt play for the yankees, would you still value you him as better than micheal young? I wouldnt.

I do not agree with number 5 of what fastanfurious wrote, its way too early to drop a player with good value. As for selling mike young, if you have a good replacement and you have a need elsewhere and you can sacrifice those runs Young will give you, then by all means trade him. I really want Jeter to do bad this season and Young to be great just so I can say "I told you so" to them Yankee fans
