It has been a while since Chris Young -- the 6-foot-10 pitcher from Princeton, not the rejuvenated Arizona Diamondbacks outfielder -- mattered for those in fantasy leagues, but make no mistake, he certainly did matter. Young's problem was rarely his pitching ability, but rather an ability to stay healthy. He's in the news after agreeing to a free-agent deal with the New York Mets on Monday, pending a physical, which in Young's case is hardly a formality.
