Im not huge on this Young trade, hopefully he doesnt play everyday. But thankfully they got rid of Linblom, he was terrible.

I have no interest in trading him unless someone overpays because they are desperate.
if you go by the advanced metrics he was in the top 5 in just about every category. He had a very good season that masked over bad luck and and loing record. personally I would never trade Lee for Ellsburys. First Im not sold on Doc being a top 10 pitcher. Secondly Ellsbury will be 30 nexr year, is injury prone, and is a free agent as a Boras client. If it were for Upton Straight up Id think about it.
