From 2010-2012 Young has hit left handed pitching fairly well.
AB 488 .307 .347 .500 .847
AB 31 .387 .412 .613 1.025 at Camden Yards
I'd offer Young a 2 year deal because he fits our needs for the next two years at the very least. But I have no idea what Young is looking for especially after a good playoff year.
The Orioles were one of the worst teams in 2012 in scoring runs off of left handed pitching. Maybe it was just a coincidence but I'd rather not tempt fate again considering the number of left handed quality pitchers we will have to face.

$27.00 doesn't go that far anymore.
I'm saying, with my $27 and your $13, we might be able to make some progress my man.
