    The majority of us have brutally ripped him (well deserved) for the entire season, but it was good to see him have such a big day. I am happy for him.

    I'm glad for Chris, but it's still just one game. I do think it's poetic justice that this occurs immediately after a certain whining thread was justifiably closed.


    Artist's rendition of the most frequent contributor to the thread in question:

    "Why is Chris Young still in the majors???????????"

    Funny enough the emotion I am feeling is happiness for a multi million dollar athlete because of all the scorn he recieves from one obssessed fan in particular. :)

    Good for Chris.

    I know he is genuinely upset about his performance this season. My hope is that a game like this where he put the bat on the ball three times in one game translates into future success for him. Like it or not, he is going to be on this team for a while. We might as well expect the worst and hope for the best.

    Here's the deal, he is the proverbial "flash in the pan" player. Today was a great game but its sad when we are schocked when he he does well and have come to expect him to underachieve. I would be happy with Young if he would become the Juan Pierre of his Marlin years. Play exceptional defense, steal bases, become more of a contact hitter and lead off threat. Those 30 HR's are his Luis Gonzalez career HR year, I would be happy if he hit .290 w/15 HR's a year rather than .220 with 30 HR's.

    Great day for CY, for sure. From here, his swing seemed a lot better and his eyes were tracking the pitch the whole way. I hope he can keep up the good momentum through the rest of the season and take a good mindset into the offseason.

    The ultimate trap player... This is par for the course for CY, and why the D-backs got suckered into dishing the contract they gave Young. My only hope is that he continues this hot streak long enough to create some serious interest from other teams, and Byrnes and Co wise up and secure a respectable trade.

    Go CY!!

    :D

    Chris Young sucks, one flash in the pan game at Coors Field in which we lost big doesn't change that for me. Besides, he went 3-3 and is still batting under .200

    am i missing something?

    No ones sending him to the HOF. Can you give the guy his day? I am not sure where either of you read he is turned the corner and is going to be a superstar from this point on.

    But cut him some slack. You would be killing him if he had a golden sombrero OR if he hit 3 home runs. He can't win with you haters.

    Give it a rest if only today.

    Nobody fell into any trap. I think people on here are happy for CY if only to show you up a little. CY is to Brian St Pierre as you are to Mitch.

    Digest that a bit and I bet you think a little differently....

    no I wouldn't, I would be unfazed if he struck out 3 times. Grace has even said it, Young is completely guessing at the plate. he guessed right 3 times. I believe the saying is Even a blind squirrel finds a nut.

    Come on, get over yourself. There have only been 3 home runs hit in a game 250 times in the National League in well over 100 YEARS prior to Chris Young's effort

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Major_League_Baseball_hitters_with_three_home_runs_in_one_game

    If it's so "lucky" to guess 3 times in a game, why was it only done 250 times before??????????

    No one here is claiming that this one game makes Chris Young a great player, and that we all love him.

    It's a simple acknowledgement of a single great game from CY. Can't you just acknowledge that 3 HR's is a special performance and leave it at that? I don't understand how that is falling into a trap.
