Fat Delmon Young’s fat era is off to a fat and annoying start, it seems. He spoke to the media today after taking batting practice for the first time this spring. Ryan Lawrence over at Philly.com has the full transcript, but here are a few highlights:
Long day yesterday?
Young: "I slept on the plane."
You slept on the plane?

Young: "It’s batting practice. I really don’t care too much to hit on the field."
You getting anxious though, watching these games…
