It may not be fair to pick on this ex-all-star. He's having a down season. Jumping on? Nah.
This season twenty opponents have attempted to steal vs Chris Young. And all twenty were safe. 20 for 20! A walk or a single is almost an automatic double for Young.
This isn't a new trend either. Back in 2007 Chris Young allowed 44 of 44 to steal successfully.
It's a tough thing to watch. Maybe it can be blamed on his height. But for this to happen year after year is inexcusable. I don't know what his off-season routine is but if I were the Padres I'd send him to winter ball in the off-season to work on keeping runners honest.
