This sentence appears in this article:

Michael Young might be on the move after a subpar season, so the Astros will need a DH.
   2. SG Posted: November 05, 2012 at 11:12 AM (#4293261)
I think Young would make a great DH for Houston if they want to improve their chances of getting the first pick in the 2013 MLB entry draft.

6. Justin Verlander, Prince Fielder, and Miguel Cabrera coming up small in the World Series makes you wonder why you’re paying out so much money if at the biggest time of the year they don’t perform.


Because if they hadn't spent the money, they'd have spent all of October sitting at home?

This works for both available Youngs.
   5. Crispix reaches boiling point with lackluster play Posted: November 05, 2012 at 11:35 AM (#4293280)
Delwyn Young could do that job for a fraction of the price.
   6. PS is probably something something Posted: November 05, 2012 at 12:33 PM (#4293368)
Dmitri Young is available. Maybe.
   7. JJ1986 Posted: November 05, 2012 at 12:58 PM (#4293417)
Chris Young the hitter is not available, but Chris Young the pitcher could probably be a better DH option than Delmon or Michael.

For a guaranteed contract at the league minimum, I'm willing to DH for Houston.
