Needless to say, Young is the kind of player the Reds need.
You'd trade Homer for him? Young might be a decent target, but it's a little concerning that his first good season has a .360+ BABIP attached to it. Especially considering that the dimensions of Coors lends itself to a few extra hits dropping in.
