You have to give Philadelphia Phillies third baseman Michael Young credit for a few things: 1) He is among the league leaders in batting average and hits; and 2) While he's no Gold Glover at third base, he's certainly not killing the team there.

As a Phillies fan, I wasn't exactly doing cartwheels after hearing of the relatively risk-free trade that landed him in Philly, but it has been tough to complain about his early results.
