I really was going to just leave this slide with just the link, but thought I should at least say a few things.

And I am struggling mightily to even find the words to say.

I’ll just leave you with this stat: Chris Young has given up 26 home runs in 60.0 innings pitched. That’s more than one home run every three full innings. It’s also the most of any pitcher in major league baseball half-way through the 2016 season.

Here’s to hoping he pitches the rest of his 2016 games in Kauffman Stadium or a stadium even bigger.
