The Phillies are set to promote Chris Young to their primary pitching coach position, per Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic (via Twitter). He had been the assistant to Rick Kranitz, who’ll now be allowed to speak with other organizations about their openings.
Young — not to be confused with this Chris Young … or that Chris Young — just wrapped up his first year with the Phillies organization after working as a scouting supervisor with the Astros. He came on board last winter, taking over the assistant job that had just been vacated by Kranitz, as the team built out a staff under skipper Gabe Kapler.
Evidently, Young made quite an impression on the Philadelphia organization — along with some of its rivals. Per Rosenthal, this move was occasioned by the fact that Young was drawing interest as a target from other clubs, leaving the Phils in need of a means of keeping him around. Kranitz will end up being bumped from his post as a result; just where he might end up isn’t yet clear.
Kapler will think they’ve hired Chris Young, a child actor who appeared on the “Brady Bunch’………
a rather silly and obscure comment to make!
As confused as Gabe appears to be at times it really isn’t.
Christopher Knight … doesn’t make sense ?
Not to be confused with Chris Young who played the evil computer nerd Bryce Lynch on the cult series Max Headroom.
I can picture Bryce Lynch as some of the faceless stat nerds that frequent MLBTR!

If she gets into a “jam”, I can help.
Hopefully Chris Young had it written into his contract that he (and not Kapler) will make all calls to the bullpen. If not, find your happy place and go there.
Sidenote: Don’t mean to pick on Kapler – sorry to hear about the loss of his home in the wildfires and wish the best for him and his family.
So its not the country singer?
How tall is this guy
Google is very easy to use.
It’s immature and irresponsible to be talking about Kapler in that manner. That’s how people get reputations they don’t deserve from fans who don’t really understand how it all works
But he’s an all over the place mess during a game.
Which is hilarious why (s)he used responsibility to defend Kapler going to the ‘pen. As a Braves fan, I appreciate his use of the bullpen – especially when Nola’s pitching.
If immature and irresponsible bother you that much, then you’ve come to the wrong place.

I don’t get Chris Young confused with “this” Chris Young, or with “that” Chris Young. However, I confuse him with “the other” Chris Young all the time.

Seriously, none of these Chris Young’s want to go by Christopher to differentiate themselves from each other?
How about using middle names or initials?
No, THAT Chris Young
It’s not that complicated everyone, you have Chris Young, Chris Younger, and Chris Youngest.
