Michael Young was a seven time All Star, a former Batting Champion and a two time leader in Hits, but his relatively low bWAR, largely due to poor defensive numbers could easily take him out of the equation for those who follow the SABR stats. Young was a very good player who had well over 2,000 Hits and retired with a .300 Batting Average but he will struggle to make it past the first year on the ballot.
