Why? I don't see what Michael Young could show him in 2 months that Chase Utley can't. It's not like Young was ever an excellent fielder. I don't see the point of getting nothing for Young or Ruiz. The Phils aren't getting a compensation pick because neither of those guys, or Delmon Young, are getting qualifying offers, and if somehow they do they're not turning them down.
