Identifying Baseball’s Biggest Positional Holes

Technically, free agency has started, but it hasn’t really started. The Yankees re-signed outfielder Chris Young. The Mets signed a minor league catcher. Things have gotten underway, but not in the way that many people care about. What we really care about are the big moves. But before those start coming in, I want to […]

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...

Chris Young Has No Regrets About Time With Mets

Chris Young was a major point of ridicule for Sandy Alderson this year. After passing on Nelson Cruz in the offseason, they signed Young as a buy-low candidate. What resulted was a season of turmoil in Queens before turning his season around in the Bronx. With the Mets in 2014, Young hit .205/.283/.346/.630 in 287 plate appearances. He was unable to produce, hitting just eight home...

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...
