Get your mind out of the gutter.
You already know my stance on Young; despite his intelligence and degree from Princeton, I’m not convinced that a) he’ll be healthy; and b) if healthy, he’ll be all that great. I have also mentioned Bush before, suggesting that he’s unspectacular but is healthy, cheap, takes the ball every five days, and would likely keep D.J. Carrasco in the bullpen and Tobi Stoner in AAA — both of which are good things.
Although both of these hurlers have been discussed here before, this is the first time MetsToday has put Young / Bush on display in the same post. That said, I’m curious to hear your thoughts: do you like Young / Bush? Why or why not?
