At 2:57 on a sunny Tuesday afternoon Michael Young was still a Phillie. He leaned over the dugout railing at an empty ballpark and stared at the field while grounds-crew members manicured the grass. He later practiced ground balls with Cody Asche a man 13 years younger who will steal most of his playing time if Young remains a Phillie.
Young controls his destiny. It is his contractual...

Obviously, the Phillies - still sore about Johnny Damon stealing two bases on one pitch - sought two pounds of flesh for Michael Young, so screw 'em. My greatest fear yesterday was...
