More on Young, I can't help but think what a little ***** he is. Quotes from Young:
"At the end of the day, there are certain factors that come into this. One is pride. Absolutely I'm proud. Pride isn't something you can shut on and off."
- You're not being benched, just moved to a position where you'll actually be better at. And pride can be a handicap, believing you're better at something than you actually are. That Gold Glove actually pumped up your pride while remaining a joke around MLB.
"I've always loved the fans. This thing was something I wanted to hammer out behind closed door and that's something that's regrettable. I didn't want the fans to choose between a player and the organization. These fans who have seen me, know me."
- If he wanted to "hammer [this] out behind closed doors," why did he spill all to FSN's Ken Rosenthal? It's because he wanted to have public support behind him, thus pitting fans between Young and the org., the exact opposite he claims now.
I used to be a Young fan, but I'm not much of one anymore, and it has directly to do with his post-move quotes.
When I am home I read it regularly, anyway I agree with you however I was never that big of a fan of Young but this shows his true colors.
