Padres - Claimed Young
San Diego Padres - Claimed 1B Walter Young off waivers from the Baltimore Orioles.
No, Walter Young isn’t really much of a prospect. He’s a huge immobile guy without any of the offensive skills of Calvin Pickering. The problem is, of course, that the Orioles didn’t say “hey, we don’t need a 1B/DH that crappy” but just preferred equally inept 1B/DH that had veteran names and that had gone to the World Series over the Waltrus. I don’t know what San Diego’s doing claiming Young; they have a bunch of 1B above him in the depth chart.
In the last Oriole thread, some people nominated me and a few others as the new GM staff. Please, no. Taking a job with the Orioles would be the equivalent of running one of those “Pimp My Ride” reality shows and having someone bring in their Dodge Dart. Not Walter Young’s, of course - if he had a Dodge Dart, the fire department would have to be there with a tub of butter, posthaste.
