What a major-league scout says: "The thing about facing Michael Young is that Toronto or any other team had better hope he comes to town and leaves without them waking him up.

"He's scuffling a little right now, but I'll bet you that isn't gonna last as sure as God makes little green apples.

"Mark Teixeira and he are the same. You have to keep them off balance, you can't fall behind and get locked into those fastball counts.

"When Young and Teixeira aren't hitting it's only a matter of time before they explode."
