Does anybody like the Phillies bringing in outfielder Delmon Young? It sure does not seem like it. Once again Ruben Amaro is taking a gamble and hoping it pays off in a big way. Nobody seems to be confident it will, and fortunately for the Phillies they are taking that gamble without putting out a lot of money to do so.
The Phillies signed Young at a price tag of $750,000 but incentives could yield up to $3.5 million this year if the move pays off. If Young manages to reach those incentives, this could be a very good year for the Phillies.
