Time To Pull Plug On Chris Young Experiment

Guaranteed playing time or not, the Mets commitment to Chris Young should not last too much longer given his recent struggles. At some point the Mets will have to pull the plug on Young and start giving his playing time to more worthy and productive players. For some odd reason manager Terry Collins decided to […]
