HR Called Five Times As Old Guys Harass Young

Yesterday, Chris Young went 2 2/3 IP, 5 ER as he allowed five solo home runs, which tied a franchise record, and was only the 7th starting pitcher to give up five home runs in less than three innings.  He was then followed by Dillion Gee.  Too bad Gee wasn't followed by Aaron Laffey, then the box score would've read Chris Young, Gee, Laffey, which, as everyone knows, is an Asian...

The Slider Moves Differently to Different Locations

I gave Royals’ right-hander Chris Young a bit of an incredulous look — “You’re throwing the slider a ton this year!” He shrugged.

Chris Young Against the Core

You can detect the nervousness. The Royals stormed out to take a commanding series lead, but then Johnny Cueto‘s own arm abandoned him, wrecking not only Game 3 but also a potential Game 7 as well. So there’s some discomfort there, some uncertainty, and now in a short while the Royals are going to throw Chris Young at the best offense in the league in the center of a homer-happy...

Young over Medlen: the right move for the Royals?

Medlen or Young? Young or Medlen? The Former Brave or the Has to Remain Brave Around Celling Fans? One Chris or Kris to rule them all. Going into what could be a decisive and otherwise extremely important Game 4 in the 2015 ALCS, this is the question Ned Yost faces.

The Iron Giant: How Chris Young saved the Royals season.

Chris Young was a last minute signing for Dayton Moore.  However, without him, the Royals may not be in the position they are in. I remember watching a game in last June when the Seattle Mariners were in Kansas City playing the Royals.  I remember watching this very tall pitcher for Seattle that couldn’t throw more than 86 mph and was in the strike zone.  Still, the Royals...

Will Seattle Mariners Pitcher Chris Young’s Comeback Year Take A Hit?
