Phillies outfielder Delmon Young has begun to show signs of life recently by hitting .325 with three home runs, 16 RBI, and an .858 OPS over his last 25 games. When asked today about his hot hitting, he offered this wonderful rationalization to Reuben Frank of CSNPhilly.com.
Delmon Young explaining his hot streak: “I would have been batting 1.000 except for the strikeouts if there were no fielders out there.” Oh.—
