Delmon Young's Change Of Scenery

How would you feel today, if you were the manager of the Minnesota Twins?

Or the general manager of the Twins?

Or a passionate fan of the Twins?

Delmon Young opened the 2011 season as a Minnesota Twins.

The Twins were favored to win another American League Central title.

Instead they finished last, and Delmon Young was one of the bigger reasons they finished last.

Young spent more than four months with the Twins, and given 305 at-bats he hit four home runs.

Four.

In August, the Twins waived Delmon Young. The Tigers, for some unknown reason -- they already had a righty-hitting outfielder, in Ryan Raburn -- signed Young after nearly every other team in the American League passed.

He's got 29 at-bats in the postseason, and has hit four home runs.

Four.

The Twins finished in last place. The Tigers are just a few breaks away from going to the World Series.
