    "Also he throws bats at umpires and yells anti-Semitic slurs when he's drunk outside the New York Hilton. But now you're just nitpicking."

    But it didn't matter. Young was the consensus top pick, and the Rays would figure the logjam out when they needed to. Check out these quotes from the 2005 Baseball America Prospect Handbook, which featured Delmon on the cover:

    An intimidating presence from the right side of the plate who elicits Albert Belle comparisons

    He's selective at the plate and has outstanding baseball instincts

    Young is a special hitter with more offensive upside than any of the organization's rising stars

    Those quotes came after Young's 2004 professional debut, in which he hit .322/.388/.538 in Low-A as an 18-year-old. He demolished Double-A as a 19-year-old, earning a promotion to Triple-A in 2005. After the season, Baseball Prospectus listed Orlando Cepeda, Sammy Sosa, Cesar Cedeno, and Hank Aaron as his comparable players. Other comparisons included Elijah Dukes and Jeff Francoeur, which is kind of like saying "The next Guns 'N' Roses album is going to be as good as either Appetite for Destruction or Chinese Democracy," but you get the idea.

    Delmon's been hurt this offseason. He will be a late signee.
    Was his injury even mentioned in the article?

    Yeah, I know he's been hurt, but I still expected him to be signed. I actually thought the Twins wouls take another flyer on him after trading off Revere and Span, but it's looking more and more like he might end up in Tampa again.

    If you are the Astros with that short LF porch and no payroll...don't you take a flier on a guy like Delmon? One year $5M base with incentives? Trade him at the deadline to a team with a postseason run in them for a bullpen arm and a prospect pitcher?

    Sounds like something the A's would do, not sure about Houston though

    You are right, it does sound like a move by Beane and the A's...
