CHRIS YOUNG NEWS

The unnamed "one baseball executive" has given Yankee fans a strategy for 2015

GO AHEAD, BRIAN CASHMAN! BREAK THE INTERNET!Well, he tried. He traded Francisco Cervelli. By my count, that added at least 20 clicks - the entire Pittsburgh Pirates' fan base - to this week's IIH traffic.And yesterday, Cashman told Mark Feinsand - he of the old Daily News Fifth - that Cash is honkin' proud of his gritty work week."This felt busier than past meetings...

The New York Yankees look to make improvements this off season to a team that won just 84 games in 2014, their lowest total since their 79-win season of 1995.

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...
