The wildcard though is that Young is sort of an unknown commodity. He may be just as hapless as Stubbs, but give him some playing time and maybe he gives us a decent OBP at the top of the order and cracks ten or so homers. If Jocketty wants to turn the page on Stubbs without blocking Hamilton long term, I could see targeting Young with an offer somewhere between Bailey and Valdez.
