Post Chris Young gets some pub

Baseball America listed him as a potential breakout player from the Futures game. They had some nice quotes about him too.

"I say he's Mike Cameron in waiting but with more power potential," said Shines, who knows Cameron has hit 167 major league homers. "He has the total package, and he's getting stronger every year. His legs were little skinny things when I first saw him, and now he's getting big and strong all over his body and his legs.
"I think he's not just going to be a good player; I think he's going to be a dominant player at the major league level."

Lots of good stuff about Ray Liotta and Gio Gonzalez also,
including confirmation that Ray Liotta is related to Ray Liotta.

I'll just say that Chris Young's ceiling is higher than any player I have seen come through Birmingham since 1997. One could argue Maggs and/or Cameron in '96. That is not to say he is sure to be a star because he still has some weaknesses and room for improvement. But his talent and ability is unquestioned. He is an exciting player to watch.

He got a nice plug from Phil Rogers today.
