Portrait of the hitter

Although reluctant to say much about himself, Young is more verbose when speaking about the ballclub as a whole.

"We thought we had a good team in '08 and we thought we had a good team last year," Young says while tightening his batting gloves in the Twins' dugout. "With the effort guys are putting in each year, this team is getting stronger and stronger. This is only my third season here, but it's the best team I've been on. Hopefully we can hold on and take this division because it's a lot of fun playing in the playoffs."
