"DELMON!"


  

          

http://www.mlb.com/news/article.jsp?ymd=20130122&content_id=41095878&vkey=pr_phi&c_id=phi

Outfielder Delmon Young has agreed to a one-year, $750,000 contract with the Phillies, Senior Vice President & General Manager Ruben Amaro Jr. announced today. The contract includes performance bonuses.

Young, 27, batted .267 with 27 doubles, 18 home runs and 74 RBI in 151 games for the Detroit Tigers last year. Against left-handed pitchers, he hit .308 (56-182) with a .500 slugging percentage and, defensively, made 29 starts in left field. In 13 postseason games, Young batted .313 with three home runs and a team-best nine RBI and was named MVP of the American League Championship Series.

Delmon is an experienced major league bat who will add some depth to our relatively inexperienced outfield and another layer of competition for playing time there as well, said Amaro.

The first overall selection of the 2003 First-Year Player Draft by the Tampa Bay Rays, Young is a .284 career hitter with 89 home runs and 482 RBI in 880 games for the Rays (2006-07), Minnesota Twins (2008-11) and Tigers (2011-12). He has made 526 career starts in left field, 156 in right field and 29 in center field. Young has batted .310 (281-905) in his career with runners in scoring position and .336 (115-342) in 89 career interleague games against the National League.

he's not a national league player btw

your left field is going to be a gold mine of bloop singles and the L-C gap is gonna open for business

but at least he'll hit into a bunch of double plays!

Or was it just a druken anti-semitic rant in NYC?

Eitehr way it cost him 7 games. I'm pretty sure it was on deadspin.

The worst?


Citi Field,Turner Field and Nationals Park.


It might be worth the money to watch him play in Petco and Dodgers Stadium

This should be great. I expect no less than 4 post negatively directly square at him throughout the season.
