If rumors that the Phillies are about to acquire Michael Young are true it will be ` pure Ruben Amaro move, and this a day after he broke the mold by trading for Ben Revere. Young, by all accounts the consummate professional, is a player who appears to be in decline. Should his current trajectory continue downward, he would be yet another attempt by Amaro to squeeze one more year (or two!!!) out of a stop-gap infielder.
The Phillies would be better off starting Kevin Frandsen, which is why they won't!
