    Good. Hopefully he can pitch in August and September when games don’t matter to give him a chance for ’13

      Its a minor league deal, no fooling taking place.

      • Wasnt last years deal a minor league one as well? Either way, theres no fooling that Young will not stay healthy. If they spent 1 dollar on him its 1 dollar wasted

    That was probably @BrickTops:disqus ‘ intention, I’m thinking.
