CHRIS YOUNG RUMORS & GOSSIP

Chris Young Could Be Perfect Fit For Red Sox’s Lineup At Fenway Park

Chris Young is a dead pull hitter. According to FanGraphs, he’s the worst opposite-field hitter on record. This isn’t always a recipe for success — quite the opposite, really — but there’s reason to believe Young, who signed a two-year contract with the Boston Red Sox on Wednesday, could take a liking to his new home, as perhaps no environment in Major League Baseball is...

Reason why the Yankees never develop young players No. 139: Chris Young is about to re-sign

Last September, the Yankees found OF Chris Young in a Mets' dumpster and took him home. They washed him, buffed him, greased his hinges, and he looked spanking brand new. (Why does that sound dirty?) For two weeks, he looked solid, batting .282 with three home runs! They thought, "Good grief, if he can hit like that for an entire season, he'd smack 50!"Apparently, they're about...

New York Mets: Chris Young released, den Dekker recalled

New York Mets fans can rejoice. Chris Young has been designated for assignment. Fans have been clamoring for Young’s release for months as he has failed to produce to the level of his $7.25 million contract. Young was signed for his power with the hope that he would bounce back from a sub-par 2013 (.200, 14 home runs) but instead the numbers have looked remarkably similar at .205...

Cutting Chris Young Should Be Next On To-Do List

Could it really be this easy? Could cutting Chris Young be the answer to all of the Mets problems this year? Of course not. As Mike Vaccaro wrote today in the New York Post, cutting Young would be a scapegoat of sorts, but simply his presence on the team contradicts the entire edict of this team. Sandy Alderson is a man of accountability and Young has been a drain on an otherwise...

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 trade rumors: Rockies edition

Questions have been swirling over the past two weeks regarding the Colorado Rockies’ apparent willingness to part with shortstop Troy Tulowitzki and/or outfielder Carlos Gonzalez. The New York Mets have been mentioned in connection to both players as we are slightly more than 24 hours away from the trade deadline. Certainly the Mets have a need for both. Ruben Tejada still has...

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. The fans at Citi Field let him have it, booing and jeering Young after each long walk from home plate to the dugout. “You’re out...

Chris Young came through for the second consecutive game on Monday, this time going 2-for-4 and delivering the game-winning, eighth-inning home run in the Mets’ 9-7 win over the Yankees. Young told reporters he didn’t know the regular season could ever feel as electric as last night, calling it the most exciting game he’s ever played in his major league career. “You’re...
