An article by posted on April 5, 2011 0 Comments

The Mets were hoping for big things from Chris Young when they signed the right-hander to an incentive laden one-year deal in the offseason, and he gave them just that only most of his heroics were at the plate and not on the mound. Chris Young came up in the the third inning and singled off southpaw […]

As the Yankees take the field this afternoon and as Austin Jackson steps up to the plate, they will usher in a year that will leave behind the age of Ken Griffey Jr., Andy Pettitte and Trevor Hoffman and continue the new era of Jason Heyward, Buster Posey and Neftali Feliz.
