COMMENTARY
Tough one because of the massive disparity in playing time. Given his horrible plate discipline, I personally believe that Young would have ended up with numbers very close to the CB if he'd actually played 103 games for Tampa Bay. . .I have doubt he would have been able to keep his batting average over .300 that long. But that's just an opinion and I can't prove it. The normalized numbers show that I wasn't THAT far off....I nailed the strikeout rate exactly, and was 3 doubles short on isolated power.
Overall I guess this qualifies as a miss technically but to be honest I don't count it as a miss in my own mind.
