For Josh Lindblom and a minor leaguer. Young will be the third baseman for the Phillies, completing one of the most overrated infields in MLB.

He'll do well offensively, but man is that infield going to be bad defensively.

Worst "Wins Above Replacement" totals for position players in the majors in 2012:
1. Jeff Francoeur -2.7
2. Michael Young -2.4
3. Greg Dobbs -2.1
T4. Ryan Raburn and Joe Mather -2.0

This list is based on the baseball-reference version of Wins Above Replacement (WAR). The Fangraphs version has Young as the worst of all, worse than Frenchy.

The Phillies fans will find a way to make him look good....or they will throw up on him.

Terrible move. The Phillies need to get younger, not older.
