Delmon Young

  1. A friendly reminder that both Michael and Delmon Young will be playing in the postseason

    Delmon Young

    Hey guys! The MLB postseason started in earnest last night. (Game 163 between the Rays and Rangers doesn’t count, since you can still use it to pad your regular season stats, for reasons I will never understand.) The Pirates beat the Reds in the Wild Card game, and good for them, having not played in…

  2. Happy Trails, Delmon Young: A Photo Gallery of the Former Phillies Right Fielder’s Time in Philadelphia

    Aug 14, 2013, 5:20 PM EDT


    The Philadelphia Phillies released right fielder Delmon Young this evening after he refused to accept an assignment with the Lehigh Valley IronPigs. It’s safe to say Young’s time in Philly was not very memorable — at least for any real positive reasons. He appeared in 80 games as a Phillie before being DFA’d to get…

  3. Let’s Trade Michael and Delmon Young Because I Don’t Like Them Very Much

    Jul 30, 2013, 9:54 AM EDT


    Despite the rebuild-at-all-costs strategy supported, implicitly or explicitly, by many Phillies fans as the 2013 trade deadline approaches, I have a great deal of ambivalence about the idea of trading Chase Utley or Cliff Lee. If you can get back an absolutely dynamite set of prospects for either, I guess you have to, but as…

  4. Phillies Outlast Padres in 13 Innings Thanks to Unlikely Contributions

    Jun 27, 2013, 6:00 AM EDT


    The Phillies might want to send Logan Forsythe a thank-you note. After all, the Padres’ second baseman did gift-wrap this game for them. Forsythe was charged not one, but two errors on the same play, allowing the Phils to score not one, but two go-ahead runs in the 13th inning. Jonathan Papelbon was able to…

  5. Video: Michael Young Totally Impressed with Delmon Young’s Inability to Get to Second Base

    May 26, 2013, 2:42 PM EDT


    If you were watching the Phillies win over the Nationals on Saturday night, you likely turned to the person sitting next to you and asked “wait, did Delmon Young really only get a single out of that ball he ripped down the line?” in the eighth inning. You can watch the go-ahead RBI single here.…

  6. Delmon Young a Five-Tool Player in Phillies Win

    May 23, 2013, 7:30 AM EDT


    Two days ago people were calling for an end to the Delmon Young experiment, or at least for Charlie to sit the guy down for a few days anyway. Now all of a sudden he’s a five-tool player, hitting bombs, tearing up the base paths, and patrolling the outfield. Young was a big reason why…

  7. Phillies Rally in the Ninth, Falter in Extras, Still Took Two of Three off Giants

    Frandsen, Utley

    Bad news: the Phillies lost to the Giants 4-3 in 10 innings on Wednesday. Good news: the Phils showed some fight, and after the dust settled, they still had taken two out of three off of the reigning world champions. Not only was it a positive way to kick off a west coast swing, plus…
