Article: Delmon Young: Detroit's Mr. October?

He got the scoring started in the fourth with blast into the left-field bullpen before Miguel Cabrera plated what turned out to be the winning run with an RBI double in the fifth. Young also had a longball in Game 1, driving in three runs in that contest. He now has seven homers in two postseasons for the Tigers, which is a franchise record.

So it was a painful on some level when he smoked that ball to Swisher in extras in game 1, and Swisher did his best Delmon Young imitation in the field on it.

But he has pretty much disappointed all year -- first with the abominable episode in New York and then with overall mediocre play.
I still root for him and consistently checked how he was doing this season so I'm glad to see him having a pretty good post-season so far.
P.S. Delmon, you need to stop going through the buffet line with Prince.

I will however laugh at the team that decides to give him 4-5 mil guaranteed next year for 90 OPS+ while playing DH. The guy literally hit behind 2 of the best 5 or 6 hitters in all of baseball this year and only managed to post a .707 OPS, that is hilariously awful.

Obviously the media (MVP voters?) think so. ALCS MVP.
As I said the summer of 2011, Delmon Young was the big winner in the Twins-Tigers trade.

If he's run out of basball that would be OK with me. He isn't a Twin because of Who he is!!! He was Given away because of who he is!!!
One of the reasons we are where we are is because of who he is!!!
