Interesting stat related to Michael Young:

Quote:
From 2002 to 2011, 24 Major League players got at least 400 plate appearances and posted a negative WAR in a season in which they were between 34 and 36 years old. Seven of those 24 -- 29 perecent -- actually rebounded to be above average players in the following season.
The article goes on to suggest that Michael Young is a solid bet to rebound if he moved to Philly. Positionally certainty and job security would help as would CBP.
