Add to that a career of poor defense and you get an extremely overrated player. Also, Young was one of the worst players in baseball last season with a dazzling .682 OPS and -1.4 fWAR/-3.2 bWAR. Terrific pickup by Philly.
Rual Ibanzez was fine in Philly and he might have been the worst defensive OF in baseball. Or one of the worst.
but yeah give me guys who swing for the fences on every swing. those guys are awesome.
