CHRIS YOUNG RUMORS & GOSSIP

Chris Young: Is he deja vu all over again?

There’s an old saying, “those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it”. It seems that while watching the 2014 version of the New York Mets, that management hasn’t learned that lesson. For example, in December of 2009, the Mets outbid no one in order to overpay for a solid defensive corner outfielder that was supposed to have a big bat too. That player is Jason...

New York Mets: Current situation at the halfway point

We are now halfway through the 2014 MLB season. And it is that time of year where every MLB team does their midseason evaluation. These past few days are the time when teams begin to realistically look at the likelihood of postseason baseball. Once this point of contention is settled, the team can decide if they are going to be ‘buyers’, ‘sellers’, or even do a little bit...

Cool Is A Rule … But Only While We’re Young

I expounded yesterday about how the Mets don’t have nearly enough easy victories. But that doesn’t mean I don’t enjoy the nail biters once in a while.

There is a discussion happening about whether to put...

Quick Hitter: Defending Chris Young

Over this past weekend, Chris Young was booed by his hometown fans. That needs to stop. Let’s get something out of the way. Young has been terrible this year, but what did we all expect? Young has been in decline the last four seasons, so was there any real reason to expect that this year would be a bounce back for him? Marlon Byrd bounced back last year, but Byrd’s 2012 season...

Chris Young Strikes Out Four Times, Now Batting .196

Chris Young may have had one of his worst games as a Met today, going 0-for-4 with four strikeouts and failing to hustle on a line drive into the outfield that got by him. Young saw his batting average drop to .196 with a .283 on-base percentage.
