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...

Here was our official forecast: PA – 512 AVG – .236 OBP –...

Why Chris Young is a Least Valuable Player Award nominee

As we continue our nominations for the least valuable player of the 2014 New York Mets, it may be safe to assume that we could just stop the search right here. One would be hard pressed to find a worse candidate (or for our purposes, a better one) than Chris Young. His season began with major question marks as he had to start the season rehabbing an injury. When he finally broke...

End of season post-mortem: New York Mets

A possible second-place finish in the NL East and near-.500 record has to be considered an improvement over the 74 wins the New York Mets earned in 2013. Of course, finishing second would be an indictment of the rest of the division, especially the cratering Braves. But the final standings could also reflect how the balance of power has changed in the NL East. The Mets and Marlins...

Yankees game 150: Tempers flare in loss

New York Yankees 1 — Tampa Bay Rays 6 The game gets away but some retaliation appears late. For the Yankees offense, only one name of late would spark the minimal offense that appears. Chris Young hit a ringing double down the left field line for the Yankees first hit of the game in the second inning. Ichiro Suzuki would follow with a single that scored Young and the Yankees took...

BTS Player of the Week – New York Yankees’ Chris Young

By Sam Henry Player of Week- Chris Young (9/8-9/14) As if it wasn’t enough already that Chris Young robbed and duped one New York baseball team out of $7.25 million this season, he has tried his luck with the crosstown rivals from the Bronx.  Young signed as a free agent with the New York Mets last winter after he batted just .200 with the Oakland Athletics in 2013. Despite Young’s...

Yankees Stand-Out Bullpen Falters at Wrong Time

The only successful thing the New York Yankees did this weekend was prevent themselves from watching the Baltimore Orioles celebrate clinching the A.L. East.The Yankees lost 3 out of 4 games and, unlike the story for most of the season, 2 of the losses were a direct result of the bullpen being unable to hold the paltry leads the offense was able to scratch out for them.

MLB Game Picks - Friday: September 12, 2014

I was one blown save away from a perfect picking day. When Chris Young hit his three-run blast in the bottom of the ninth off of Jake McGee to win the game for the New York Yankees, a dream 11-0 day went out the window. That was also the Game of the Day pick. And you know what? How can I be upset about that?I had called the double-header sweep by Cleveland. I had called the Red...

Thank you, Chris "Forever" Young. You spared us from a night of ignominy that, even in this cold year of mediocrity, would have forever stung

In recent years, a handful of players came to New York to be magically reborn. It's a short list: David Wells... Paul O'Neill... Nick Swisher... Scott Brosius... Bartolo Colon... Russel Martin...Some needed lineups with more support (O'Neill, Brosius). Some needed the giant stage of Gotham. (Swisher, Wells). Some needed juice. (Bartolo).Often, donning the pinstripes brings...
