Maybe its just doing the guy a favor and helps the orginization down the road with another veteran. Theres not even a ST invite so its not like he’ll be taking playing time away. What if Delmon is FA and he signs here just because of this. Some peoples anger is so misplaced. 5 years ago we would never even know he was at Pirate city.

Hi guys, I’m Dmitri Young, make sure that half your check each month doesn’t go to McDonald’s, try eating a few vegetables every once in a while that aren’t beer battered, and at least try to look at a tread mill every once in a while.  I’m Dmitri Young….

The more you know.

If he can teach some young AAA players from his experiences – including what not to do – there is no harm in bringing him on board.
