Hardly a Breakout Night

Delmon Young picked up his first extra-base hit since April 22 in last night's 4-2 win over the Rockies. He had two of them, in fact, as he doubled twice in a 3-for-4 effort. That's not to say the left fielder's night was all that encouraging.

Young's biggest problem this year has been an inability to get the ball up off the ground, as his ground ball percentage of 62.7 ranks him second in the AL behind Julio Lugo. Despite the three-hit game last night, this issue persisted. His first hit was a dribbler to second base which he beat out for a single, while his doubles were both hard hit grounders down the baselines (one to left and one to right).

Some have mused that perhaps playing in the thin Colorado air will help Young finally hit his first home run, but I think he'd have to be playing on the moon to get any of these hits over the fence.

Unfortunately, I heard that Major League Baseball is installing a humidor on the moon.

Well, Julio Lugo has 76 home runs in his 10 1/4 years of playing. I'm sure Young can get one sometime...

Even the moon won't levitate something heading straight for it's surface. Though, he could probably get a few ground-rule doubles.

Who comes to the Metrodome and hits FEWER jacks? His stolen bases are up and his batting average isn't that that bad. I don't know. I say we make a trade with Arizona to get Mark Reynolds or Chad Tracy.

Give him time, He's making solid contact and looks like he has some of 5 tool potential everyone use to talk about.

If Jason Tyner can hit a homerun, Delmon Young has to be able to hit one sometime right......right?
